ALBINO ALLIGATOR. It was nice to see that. The different geographical set ups were very nice and different from other zoos. When I went, they were in the process of renovating so we didn't get to see the elephants and there also were no lions. We were told that it had died 2 years before. They had a white tiger... More

The zoo is well keep and has a children's petting area. The zoo offers a good walk for exercise while learning about nature. The Louisiana Swamp area was really nice for those that do not live in this environment. We enjoyed the reptile house with the two- headed snake. The elephant area was closed off for redo so you missed... More

Purchased tickets for Zoo/Aquarium/Insectarium. The zoo is wonderful! It is a large zoo, but not overwhelming. It is very easy to navigate and is very well kept. The animals are largely very active and entertaining. The staff was very friendly and informative. Don't miss out on the otters in the Louisiana Swamp area! They are definitely the highlight.

Sure the zoo is great especially if you have kids. But the Audubon Park is huge and beautiful. Huge oaks with Spanish Moss, Lakes with wild ducks all well kept and relaxing.

Despite the humid weather, we enjoyed our time at the zoo. A zoo van picked us up at the street car stop for a complimentary ride to the zoo entrance. The zoo was very clean and easy to get around. The cafe was expensive, however. Not to miss!

We went here with our 12 year old daughter and her friend, thinking it was just another way to occupy the kids. So much for uninformed expectations. This is one of the premier zoos in the country, with some exhibits we haven't seen anywhere else. Highlights included feeding the giraffes by hand and watching the gorillas being fed. This zoo...

This was a very cute zoo- lots of exhibits and interesting animals. They are doing a bunch of work on the exhibits so there was a lot of construction going on. Seems like it will be a great zoo after all is completed. There were tons of things to do, but I just didn't like how every activity was an... More

Drank some beers while talking to the knowledgeable and friendly elderly gentleman who narrates the gator feeding.

We finally took the time to visit the Zoo while we were in New Orleans. It was a very nice Zoo, lots to see. We did not have children with us, but I believe it's got a lot for kids! We had a great time!
