Been very lucky to have been to quite a few zoos around the world Regents Park London, Taronga Park Sydney, Auckland zoo NZ, can honestly say not the biggest but in my opinion the best I've been to, even to the point where at various points around the zoo there are fans with a fine mist spray for the patrons...

The Memphis Zoo is one of the best in the country. The animal exhibits are great, but the grounds are also beautiful. Definitely eat in the café so that you can watch the monkeys while you eat (or they can watch you). It is also fun to feed the giraffes. If is a fairly large zoo. We always walk, but... More

What a lovely zoo with a great array of animals and well designed space. The Pandas are the main attraction, but big cats, bears, monkeys, giraffes, and elephants are all on display. This zoo has pretty much everything one would want to see.

We were in Memphis while one of our Grandson's was having surgery at LeBonheur Children's Hospital. We took the other 3 Grand Kids to the zoo twice, because there was so much to see that we couldn't get it all done in one day. The kids loved the zoo..both times!

Seems as though we got there during nap time, most of the animals were asleep. There was some construction going on but we did manage to get a few pictures. It was $30 to get in for the 2 of us, no military discounts.

Memphis Zoo is a very exciting place to visit and take the kids. They have a train that I can ride when I get tired of walking that will take you all over the entire Zoo. You would really enjoy meeting new people on the train and get opportunity to get out the heat too.

Great zoo! Took us about 3 hours to get through the entire zoo, but we could have easily stayed longer. A great value.
