Kansas City Zoo, Kansas City Reviews - Write a Review
I️ went today with my boys and it was a perfect day! The animals were active and no crowds at all! My son had a one on one chat with several zookeepers and he got to feed the sea lions during the show. It was the best! We’ve been many times but today was one of the best! The zoo staff was very helpful and friendly and knowledgeable , the grounds beautiful, and plenty of animals out and about.
This is a great time of the year to go to the zoo. The animals are all still out, but there's not a lot of people around during the day! I went on a Wednesday, and there were several times that it was just me and the animals, which was very nice. I had my packed lunch in the chimp house while my phone charged at the free charging station. I went by myself for a "Treat Yourself" kind of day, and it was really worth it. There is a lot of walking, obviously, if you want to see everything, but if you're able, strap on those tennis shoes an hit the trail!
I love the zoo. It's such a peaceful great place to visit. I love the things you learn about the animals, how well you take care of them and the affordability of getting a family pass for the year applied to the days visit. The only thing... i wish that it was open later. A my family are all older and very active. So it's hard to go in the day. I would visit much more often of it was open in the evenings. My family as well. Maybe just a couple nights a week? Like a date night special. ....? Etc.
I would say it it is a bit underrated zoo. It seems that, animals with the exception of a white bear, are all looking healthy. Primates have a lot of freedom to move about and can move away from the crowds if they want privacy, which is great. Yes, you have to wait and "hunt" to see them, but it only makes it more exciting. The zoo is also a huge park, and you can just have a great stroll throughout the property on its own. So, definitely recommended!
I think Kansas City zoo is one of the best zoos I have ever been to. It's pretty big and I would recommend to go early so that you can see all the animals and take loads of photos. Stay hydrated and wear comfortable shoes and sunscreen. I would love to go there again
