Excellent zoo! I have been to a few but I really loved the Memphis Zoo. It has all your classic zoo animals--lions, tiger, bears, giraffe, but then it also has your basic farm animals (train ride for $1 was a huge hit with my 3 year old). African safari was incredible--elephants!! Every animal that I could think of was there.... More

We really enjoyed our day at the Zoo. I loved feeding the giraffes. There are a large number of animals to see. The pandas are adorable and on the day of our visit all the animals were visible. They have a shuttle to take you to different areas of the park for a fee (reasonable). There are additional fees for... More

We even grabbed a bite to eat there,which was very reasonable. The Zoo was very Clean and a lot larger than I thought,... More

Memphis, and the southeast are blessed to have this treasure right here in Memphis, TN. The exhibits are modern and first rate. My favorites are Cat Country and the Polar Bear exhibits. Do NOT miss!!!

The zoo is a decent size - big enough to spend a few hours, but not so much as to be overwhelming. They have a nice variety of animals/exhibits, and there are many demonstrations throughout the day. Quick tip - if you stop by Graceland to buy the tickets, you can save a few dollars.

The Memphis Zoo is a must see for all ages when in Memphis.It had such unique features as the Grand Teton exhibit. New animals and viewing areas are being added and updated each year. No one needs to miss some of the great areas such as the penguins and their underwater activities with each other. They are so adorable! You... More
