The Audubon Zoo wasn't originally on our itinerary for the trip, but many locals told us it was a must-do. Although we enjoyed our time there, I didn't find there to be anything above and beyond any other zoo I've been to.

This is the second time visiting the zoo. Was exciting that most of the animals were out this trip but was disappointed that hardly none of the concessions were though. We find going when the zoo opens before it gets too warm is the key to find the animals out and about. Unfortunately the sea lions again were not there,... More

The most beautiful zoo! The zoo is spread across an old sugar plantation. There are lots of trees for shades and many beautiful old fountains and statues! There are traveling exhibits and of course the train is always fun!

Was expecting more, from the reviews, people were raving about this place! Nothing exciting. The highlight was the swamp, the albino gator and the jaguars were stirred up, the rest of the animals were sleeping or "away due to bad weather" (it was sunny and humid, 31 degrees... What bad weather?) save your money if you are doing the swamp... More

We spent a very hot & humid day at the Zoo! The staff was very nice. The primate, reptile, and bird exhibits were very enjoyable. The trees and grounds are beautifully maintained. It's not nearly as extensive as the San Diego Zoo or Bronx Zoo, but it's a lovely small zoo.

Love this zoo and the fact it reminds me of how zoos were like in the 70s. The animals were more so in an simulated habitat as though they were in the wild...a lot more responsive.......albeit the zoo has almost no shade so carry lots of sun screen and carry a hat!

Well displayed, informative and interesting. Great way to spend a couple of hours in the cool or during a time of monsoon rains.

Had a great time. Wish the elephant area was finished. My daughter loved the animatronics dinos. Plenty to see and do.
