The zoo is easy to navigate and the animals seem well cared for although their enclosures seemed small. They were doing lots of work when we were there so some exhibits were closed.

The white alligators and the giraffes were my favorite. Only reason I gave it a four star was that hardly any of the vendors were open and it was hard to find an employee. It was really fun though.

This place is awesome. It is huge and will take you nearly a day to walk around the entire zoo. It is good for the whole family not just children. My wife and I had a great time visiting the Audubon zoo.

I'm not normally a fan of animals in captivity but this zoo was good. It was extremely hot but the zoo had several concession stands and shady areas along with fans spraying water. There is also a water park to cool off in. This zoo did have a lot of animals available to see but without a map you wouldn't... More

We have always loved this zoo. We try to go once every couple of years. There are so many exhibits and the grounds are meticulous.

Hot, but loads of fun. There are so many diverse animals housed at this zoo. The zoo took a direct hit during Katrina, but has made an excellent comeback. I've been there many times with the kids and grandkids. Highly recommend for all age levels. entry prices are reasonable, but food and souvenirs are not, senior discounts and group discounts... More

It was a humbling to see the animals in their natural habitat. kudos to those workers who share/display their knowledge and passion in their interaction with 'all creatures big and small'.

We went for opening - 10am - which doesn't appear to be the best time. Most animals were already in the shade and seemed to resting from the heat. Would make more sense if they opened earlier in the summer months. You can't fault the variety but I felt like there was little activity(not wanting to see tricks but some... More

The Audubon Zoo was our last stop in our Audubon Experience in New Orleans. So far, all attractions which included the IMAX experience, the Aquarium and the Insectarium, have all been great. If the first three were at all any indications, then presumably, the Zoo should not disappoint. We were able to avoid the lines as we did purchase the... More

Very helpful staff, easy parking. The construction was a bit noisy during our trip. Did not get to see all of the zoo, but enjoyed the exhibits we did see.
