We have a membership at NBG and every year enjoy the Annual Swap with VA Zoo! We took our 4 grandkiddos and had a blessed visit! The covid precautions are very well done at the zoo and the animals look very healthy too! The baby giraffe is adorable, the tiger beautiful, the meerkats so cute, and we loved watching the orangutans! The train ride isn’t very long but reasonably priced at $2 each. The Run Wild Discovery Zone was a hit with the kids with the stump jump and balance beams & logs & they always enjoy the climbing on the huge snake & it’s a fun photo op! It’s wonderful having a zoo close by and the Swap is such a fantastic practice between VA Zoo & NBG!❤️

Two thumbs up👍🏾👍🏾! The Virginia Zoo in Norfolk was amazing despite some exhibits being closed due to COVID-19. The staff has an impressive knowledge base of the animals and they asked if we had questions while passing through each exhibit which made the Virginia Zoo much better than most zoo's. It's was nicely laid out and very easy to navigate. The train ride was the highlight of my daughter's day. The Virginia Zoo is definitely worth a visit.

A great activity to do with parents or young children. We visited during the COVID-19 pandemic which meant that a number of exhibits were closed.

I had a very nice time. A lot of the animals have a nice area outdoors in the environment they are used too. They seemed very content. Its not too big . The gardens flowers and trees were especially nice.

First, the Virginia Zoo is doing timed visits - which means you cant enter the zoo until your time slot. Good to know so you buy the tickets online ahead of time instead of having to wait in the parking lot. I called customer service and was able to purchase 2 tickets over the phone since there was only one spot left for the current time slot and the woman helped me out, so i didn't have to wait 45 min in the parking lot. She was very nice. The enclosures were very impressive and it was nice to walk around, even if the heat was bad. The zoo is laid out nicely, where you can walk the path and basically go around the whole zoo without a map. The Australian walk about, petting zoo and reptile house was closed. I'm assuming due to covid since they would be in close proximity to other people to do that. The cafe was open and air conditioned and the food/drink prices weren't bad. I don't think the train was running either due to covid. Overall with the closed exhibits it took about 2 hours to completely walk through the zoo. It was a pleasant visit, the place was nice and clean. I would definitely recommend this zoo to people who havent gone.
