The staff was friendly and helpful. We were there for several hours because it is a large zoo and by the time we got to certain areas the animals were not out. That was disappointing for my 2 year old, but it is still a great zoo. We did get to see the pandas. It was hot and the zoo had large fans placed throughout which gave a little relief, this was a great thing, because most of them had a mist attached so you could cool off. They also honor other zoo memberships and give a discount on admissions, this was a bonus.

Nice layout, good animal attractions. A nice family outing. They have been adding attractions and have special events throughout he year. Definitely worth visiting especially with young kids or families.

Besides the horrible Memphis heat and the boat load of people, the zoo was pretty fun. They had many interesting exhibits. Although majority of the employees had attitudes and came off as really snobby, my friends and I had a great time

Love this zoo...I have been three times and still rank it as one of my top five zoos. I love the cats. Go see the tigers first if you get a chance. There you get to see a white tiger, an orange tiger and a regular Bengal tiger. The lions are also great. Walk around the Lion exhibit to get a good pic of them in the open. Now for one of my favorites...the cheetahs. I am writing this review without any cheetah pics as I am sorting through them and wanted to get the review on TripAdvisor. I could spend all day between the tigers, lions and cheetahs and be happy, happy and happy.

Love the newer area with natural areas and buildings and cultural areas realistic to animals- China for pandas, north country for bears, best exhibit is the sea lions so much fun. The older area of the zoo is nice but needs updates, definitely worth it though.
