Dallas Zoo - Review

The Dallas Zoo is the biggest zoo in Texas. Like most of the zoo, the people at the Dallas Zoo try and make a visit to the zoo fun, entertaining and educative all at the same time. Their Wilds of Africa section is the most frequented one, followed by the Giants of the Savannah exhibits. The Dallas Zoo is proud of the animals on display and takes pride in the fact that they not have an elephant herd but four African lions and many endangered apes of the jungle as well. If you like what you see, you could take it one step further and hop onto the 20 minute monorail safari.

Dallas Zoo, Dallas Reviews

  • There is something for everyone to see at this zoo, from the smallest insect to the largest elephant. Feed giraffes by hand and see them with zebras and elephants in large, free-roaming areas in the Africa exhibit. Large cats and warthogs are also interesting there. Monorail is closed during extreme hot or cold weather, but worth the trip when open. Hippo exhibit is cloudy water with bad light by afternoon, but keeper talk in the afternoon brings them up to be seen. If you like birds, you can feed some by hand in the Children's area aviary, with both seeds and worms, and they will land on your hand, arm or shoulder to eat. Lots of other fun activities there, too, for smaller children. Summer is hot but most areas are shaded and some include misting stations, plus enough air conditioned exhibits or restaurants spread around to cool off.

  • Great zoo that allows you to get close to the animals, which are in large habitats that allow them to roam as well. My personal favorite feature is that you can feed the giraffes! They were sweet, like very tall doggos. Overall, the zoo is walkable and even has areas to cool down if the heat gets to you. Also loved that most exhibits had a volunteer or zoo trainer available answering questions or just informing about animal behavior. I was lucky enough to catch the hippo exhibit when the trainers were feeding and explaining all things hippo. Very cool.

  • It's a small zoo but you could realistically spend the day there if you take your time- and there is NO ZOO SMELL!! Gosh that was worth 3 stars by itself. But I wasn't impressed with the food options. It was pretty much just sugar and salt (which I understand because they just want to get you to buy more drinks) but the foods weren't even kid friendly or healthy... However, the staff was very nice and knowledgeable. I loved that there was a station to feed the giraffes.

  • It was pretty good. My 18 mo old had a good time. The chimps were entertaining as always. I'd see go earlier in the day because of the crazy heat. Make sure you take your little one to the children's zoo, the bird show was fun. Bring your own water because it's 2bucks a can!

  • Season pass membership is the way to go if you love a good Zoo with lots to see and do, and get early entry on certain days, train rides and discounted food. The exhibits are clean and comfortable and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Having spoken with caretakers, you can tell they love the animals like family and endearingly call them all by their given names. Great opportunities for good photos and regular show and tells around the park. Plenty of shaded and indoor areas to get a break from the heat, and several eateries for basic items. There's even a campground for overnight stays! Strollers are available for rent and of course there are plenty of souvenirs. There's also a large kids playground that will keep the little zoologists busy or spend the last bit of energy for a quiet ride home. Night time and seasonal events are enjoyable and the crowds are well manageable. It's never felt over crowded, but can definitely get busy at peak times. Pro tip: Get a membership and arrive at 8am and the park is all yours! I've loved watching the little ones grow up like Bahati the lioness cub and playing hide and seek with her! Highly recommended!
