Loved the layout and the attention to detal. The animals seem well respected. Go when the weather is warmer and you will see more activity. Check the feeding schedules as the residents eagerly await that.

We try and get to a zoo or wildlife experience every where we travel. The Zoo as it was part of our Audubon package - great deal, basically get one attraction out of 3 free. This is a very nice, clean and well appointed zoo. They are doing lots of new building and it is obvious that the animals are... More

We went to the zoo on a whim..... and we are glad we did. Beautiful zoo ( a lot under construction this time of year) The animals they had were very different than the animals we see in the zoos in Chicago. The animal displays were really nice and the zoo was very pleasant to walk through. Even though we... More

We took the St.Charles Street trolley out from the French Quarter and got off at Audubon Park. We didn't realize that there is a shuttle bus to take you from the streetcar stop around the park to the zoo so we wander around the perimeter of the park and enjoyed it thoroughly but we were late getting to the zoo,...

We were very excited to get to the zoo. Especially after driving over 6 hours, but when we got there, a large portion of it was under construction. A lot of animals were not on display (elephants, giraffes, seals, alligators, etc) due to construction and weather, so that was disappointing. It looks like whenever the construction is finished, it will... More

Really beautiful zoo, best I have been to. The animals have plenty of room, are well cared for, and I are close and easy to see.

Huge vast sprawling zoo gets you up close to the animals. Beautiful and well kept. Catch the sea lion show. A must for the kids. Buy the annual pass and it gets you into many more zoos across the country. Feet getting tired? Hop on the mini train and ride it around the park to scope out the areas you... More

Really enjoyed our trip there, sucks alot of it is unser construction, but it will be much better when the construction is finished. New enclosures and the lazy river will be nice additions. Also if you plan on making multiple trips to the zoo, aquarium, insecterium go ahead and get the membership. It will easily pay for itself after a... More

Thanks, wfarrell1! We are looking forward to construction completion as well. Meanwhile, we hope everyone enjoys strolling the grounds during these beautiful January days we seem to be having. There's still plenty to see - gorillas, giraffes, rhinos and our new petting zoo area Watoto Walk. Hope you come back to see us soon when the azaleas are in bloom! More

My daughter and I visited the zoo. The assortment of different animals and their enclosures allowed people to get really close to them. My daughter's favorite animals were the Amur leopard, Komodo Dragon, and the jaguar. She also enjoyed the reptile house.
