San Antonio Zoo And Aquarium Reviews & Ratings
The San Antonio Zoo is clean, exciting, and educational. Everywhere you turn you have the opportunity to learn about animals AND to learn about how you can help with conservation. The staff are so friendly and genuine. You can really tell the people working are happy to be there and be a part of the zoo experience. This zoo even features daily animal presentations at the most visited exhibits! Passionate and dedicated workers, healthy and active animals, and a goal dedicated to making the world a better place for all animals, not just the human ones. An excellent place for all ages.
Very well done zoo for being on the smaller side (compared to Houston Zoo). Love the "secret" passage to the elephant exhibit from Africa Live exhibit. Well shaded. Great Live Oak exhibits. Update after second visit: Fantastic zoo! Amazing activities for children. Huge outdoor play area that is well shaded. Education center staff are very good with kids and enthusiastic about the animals. Staff introduced us to a ball python which my son excitedly touched and let him help prep a snack for the squirrel monkeys and watch them eat it. Six stars.
This is a pretty neat little zoo. It's designed well enough for you to easily take a trip around the whole place and not feel lost. Love all the trees and the many air conditioned exhibits. Nice break for hot days.
They are constantly renovating and creating new attractions! The kids area has a nice water play spot with sand as well as a "mud kitchen" play area. I love that they have an air conditioned nursing room for moms. Great size zoo, not too overwhelming. Can't wait to see more of their projects (like the jaguar walkway!) in the future.
A good zoo but not as good as it was a few years ago. There were too many bird exhibits. However they did have some unique opportunities such as feeding giraffes. I enjoyed going to the zoo and I will be back!
