Nicely designed small zoo
Sep 2021
This zoo is located inside Tucson and is fairly small. However, the exhibits are well done, and the animals appear well-cared for and most were engaged in their environments. I saw many keepers tending to them during my visit. Easy to get to on the city bus, and an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. Closes early in summer - go in the morning if possible.

Great little zoo!
Apr 2021
We loved this zoo. It's nice and small but has so much to offer still. We were able to walk around it quickly since it was hot but still felt like we got to see so much!

Nice surprise
May 2021 • Family
First time visitor but long time zoo visitor
This was quite a surprise expected less but throughly enjoyed my visit even with covid restrictions the zoo was busy
The zoo is well kept laid out well so it was easy to locate all the exhibits some of the attractions were not available but still there was plenty to see we had 4 children under 13 who were also thrilled at seeing all the animals especially the giraffes & elephants
The cost is lower then some of your larger city zoos that's a plus the parking was ample the food costs are as high as other cities
If you take your time you could see all that there is to offer in about 3 hours

One of the nicest kept smaller zoos I've ever visited. Nice variety of exhibits where everything was clean, attractive and had activities for the animals.

Early morning = Active animals 😊
Feb 2021 • Couples
Getting an early reservation was fun as we got to watch the animals “discovering” their food. The giant anteater is a photo-must. The giraffes, lion, elephants, zebras and many birds were fun to watch. The purple Black History signage throughout was informative - interesting and fun to read the stories of trailblazers in zoological careers!

I’m worried that the zoo would be crummy. But it was. Good. Clean. Animals were out despite the early morning cold weather. Not too expensive as a senior. Spent two hours.

Super fun!

We went here during the later afternoon! It was a perfect time to go cause all the animals were very active and many were getting fed. The zoo is a perfect size to do in about 2 hours. You could see all the animals up close and they all seemed in good health. Overall we LOVED this place and will definitely come back if we get the chance!

The African Elephant herd is very fun to watch. Baby Penzi is too adorable for words, and her older sister Nandi is the best big sister ever. The yards are really nice as the bulls (males) can be separated from the girls, yet they meet up off/on all day to spend time trunk touching, and elephant talk.

I’d give 5*, but I didn’t like the constant supersonic military flyovers, which had ear-piercing noise. Also the enclosure is so close to busy, fast moving traffic w/lots of siren noise.
