About Dallas Zoo, Dallas
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 - Write a Review
I'll be honest. I'm from Dallas so I'm giving the full five stars because of my home town love. We went this weekend while the weather was in the 60s. Everything was super enjoyable and all of the staff was friendly. The children's zoo was perfect for our 19 month old. I suspect it might be a bit too basic for kids over 5 tho. The zoo layout was easy to navigate with a stroller. Be prepared for about 2 hours to see the zoo in full and that's hustling. We ate at one of the cafe's near the monkeys. Expensive but the food was very good. I wish there were some bears and more cats. I did not see any of the reptile exhibits. Looking forward to another family outing in the spring.
I LOVE this zoo!! The elephant enclosure is spacious and they only use positive reinforcement for training. Feeding the giraffes is a great experience. And the volunteers/staff are friendly and knowledgeable. There are wheelchair accessible vantage points at nearly every exhibit and mist fans during the summer. Highly recommend!!
We are members and there is a night time event where you get to visit the zoo at night after they have set up all these Christmas lights and decorations. I did not think too much about it but figured it would be a different experience to try with my cousins and all our kids, nephews and niece's. It was definitely a WOW experience. Finding parking was a breeze. There were no lines or wait times. While we did not get to see a lot of the animals (most were likely sleeping), the lights were well done and there was plenty to do and photo opportunities abounded. Kudos to the Dallas Zoo for such an event well done!
Fun, fun, and fun! It is a lovely place to spend a whole day JUST remember to pack the following: 1- enough water and drinks 2- lunch and snack 3- good camera to take memorable photos 4- a picnic mat so that you can relax and enjoy watching the view. It is good to bring a cooler with you if you have one or a wagon to put all of your stuff and drag it. If you don't have one you could rent it for 10$. Also you MUST wear comfortable shoes as you will walk for LONG. During this time of the year, don't forget to apply enough sunblock with water resistant before you go especially for the kids.
We are members, and we visit 10+ times per year. Great recent additions with Giants of Savannah and Hippo Outpost habitats. Also lots of new renovations and programs - summer nights and zoo lights that expand the fun and experiences you can have at the zoo. Always feel animals are well cared for, have plenty of space and enriching environments, and the zoo does a lot for conservation and animal husbandry efforts across the world. Proud to be a member and support such a wonderful zoo.
