The zoo here in Wichita is one of the best zoos I have ever been to. Great photo ops. The animals are in their natural habitat. Price is right! Entertaining for adults as well as children.

The Sedgwick County Zoo is wonderful! The paths wander through the exhibits so you see all the animals very easily. You can do a short or long outing and enjoy your time. The staff is willing to talk and are very friendly. Bring your lunch or buy one at the restaurant, hot dogs and burgers made for you. Our whole... More

The Sedgwick County Zoo has a large collection of interesting animals, many of which featured in their natural habitat. There's a petting zoo with dispensers for purchasing food to feed the animals in that area. The penguin display and the gorilla house were added in recent years. We have visited it many times and it has been fun, as well... More

After visiting the Omaha zoo last month, I realize how great the Wichita(Sedgwick County) Zoo is. A perfect size for a full day with small children, or a 3/4 day with older children. The animals are well cared for and you will find vary few in a "cage" but instead they are in beautiful enclosures. There are enrichment items and... More

They are always making this place better. I love that it is different every year and you never get tired of seeing the same thing because it is ever changing.

Sedgwick County Zoo has consistently been listed as one of the top 20 in the world. After visiting the zoo, I am positive you will agree. They are constantly adding new animals and updating existing cages and paddocks. They have a petting zoo which consists of sheep and lambs. You can feed the sheep, fish, ducks, geese, giraffes, and other... More

I have been going to the zoo for many years, taking all my kids, going with schools. I go with schools now. It is fun and interesting and they have improved so much over the years. I like to go when it is cool out because the animals move around more. But it is well worth the time and money... More

I really do appreciate that there are some resting areas that are under tree shaded areas! The walk is long or you can take the train. I think it's a very nice zoo and I always enjoy it when I go there! Personally, I like to pack a little lunch and drink!

No this isn't San Diego but it is the best zoo in a 300 mile radius....clean, well maintained, great modern exhibits. Our grandkids love the place.

Great place to spend a morning or afternoon. Gorilla and big cat exhibits are particularly good. There is enough to keep you happily entertained all day if you like to stop and read every plaque and description. Elephant training occurs in the morning, as I recall. Check schedule for other features, such as big cat training, giraffe feeding, etc. Admission... More
