This zoo is just the right size for the casual visitor. It takes about 3 hours to walk the whole thing. The swamp area was where I found the most natural settings.

(Actual visits: 12/24/10 & 11/27/12) Our family enjoys this zoo every time we come to NOLA. It houses an amazing collection of animals with on-going work to make room for in-coming new species. There is an animal demonstration featuring baby animals for the little ones to touch. My favorite is the baby hedgehogs. Soo cute!!! Visitors can walk around as they like and/or are encouraged to follow the raised boardwalk. The trail includes a small petting zoo with friendly birds. The larger animals further down the walk can seem at times a bit laid back, but this is the Big Easy and they are relaxing. The walk takes visitors through various set-ups to feature different time-periods and eras from around the state. There are plenty of places to stop and rest with gift shops dotting the compound.

This zoo is great for anyone no matter the age. It can not only be education, but fun and enjoyable too. I will always visit. :)

I've been to many zoos around the country and none as beautiful as the Audobohn zoo! The zoo is large, well maintained, lots of animals from around the world. Great atmosphere!

The zoo had many places under construction with exhibits closed. These animals were not in natural habitats. The enclosures were all too small. A cheetah should run, not be in a 100 foot long cage.
The zoo was very spread out, a long walk between exhibits with very little shade or protection from the heat and sun for visitors.
