All in all a good day to go in Dec. not crowded until the zoo lights came on for the holiday in the park. Good display of festive lights. I think light show would have been more enjoyable to Christmas music. Exhibits seemed to be under some construction a bit more than expected. Lots of bird exhibits. Pricey to eat or drink inside. Entry was about what I would expect for a zoo. Enjoyable visit. Friendly enough and helpful staff.
It’s been about 10 years since I have visited the zoo and although the admission price is more than I recall, they have definitely made a LOT of improvements. I didn’t even recognize the place! The giraffe exhibit is really cool because you can now walk onto a deck that is as tall as the giraffes and you can actually feed them. Even if you don’t pay extra to feed them, you are able to walk on the deck and see them face to face – it was AWESOME! The Lory exhibit is also pretty cool. You walk into this aviary and if you pay a couple of bucks, you can feed the birds – they will actually land on your shoulders and arms to eat. One in our group didn’t have any food but 3 or 4 of the birds landed on him as soon as he walked in the gate for some reason. Parking is the same as it always has been – kind of tough to park in the lot in Brack Park, but don’t forget there is parking under the highway on the opposite side of the zoo. Signage could be improved – it’s hard to find your way to the exit when you are leaving.
Always a fun time at the SA Zoo. The different events they do each year are always fun (Zoo Boo, Zoo Lights) as well as different themes each year (one year was BugMania). Is it expensive? It depends on what you get while you are there visiting. I go at least once or twice a year. If you keep track of offers via coupons they generally offer specials via savings apps or Social Media. The SA Zoo definitely offers a variety of animals to see in a unique setting. Definitely worth the price of the ticket a few times a year for the family.
A small but very nice zoo. Lots of shade and a good variety of exhibits. I do wish there were better labels on some of the exhibits, especially in some of the indoor snake and reptile exhibits. I attended zoo lights in 2017, it was pretty nice and not too packed. Just make sure to go early since there can be long lines. I would definitely recommend the membership though, two visits pays for itself.
Great place for kids and families. Decent light show. Nice restaurant behind carousel. Friendly staff. Christmas lights were really nice. Not all the animals were out but it depends on time of day and temperature.
