Loved the zoo and the layout of the park. Staff helpful, friendly, and very knowledgeable. Natural settings made it seem like the animals were very comfortable and content. Looking forward to the new additions in October and want to return to see them.

If you love animals this is the place to go. The grounds are very well kept and the animal enclosures are very natural for the animals that live there. They have several events during the year to raise money for the zoo that are so much fun. Check it out.

The fresno chaffe zoo is one of the coolest zoos I've been to. Me and my wife love taking our son. It's on the smaller side but isn't to small at all, and it's growing! We can't wait to see the African adventures expansion! Ticket prices are low too!

We are so fortunate to have such an outstanding zoo for our size city . The addition of the African exhibit this fall along with the sea lion cove will delight anyone who comes and enjoys a Fresno treasure

Great family outing for young kids and adults. It has picnic tables and just a great time and not a bad zoo. Has a variety of animals to see.

This is a great place to get out of the house and enjoy wild life. Place is clean, friendly knowledgeable staff. Animals always doing something different. Bird show is great. African safari coming soon (can't wait). Rain forest is a nice spot to wet someone at the waterfall, lol.... If your local, never miss the Producers ice-cream safari, it is... More

This was certainly a surprise. We did not expect to find such a great zoo in Fresno. It is not the largest zoo but is certainly big enough and does not require a lot of walking between the exhibits
