Home to exotic animals from around the world, El Paso Zoo provides a place to learn about wild creatures. The zoo is split into three major sections: animals of the Americas, animals of Asia, and animals of Africa. Take the opportunity to visit the critically endangered species housed here, like the Amur leopard, Mexican wolves, and the Aruba rattlesnake. Kids will enjoy a ride on the African Star Train through the African exhibit to see animals like giraffes, zebras, and ostriches. To learn more, attend one of the zoo's animal training sessions or meet with zoo staff at one of the educational programs offered in several exhibits.

  • Nice variety of animals and reptiles and birds. Gift shop was a bit pricey though. Prices of admission have gone up too. Nonetheless family spent a good and relaxing time there.
  • Went here on a really warm day. Zoo was nice size and many parts were shaded surprisingly. If you live in area look into doing a year pass as they offer competitive prices.
  • Nice and inexpensive way to spend time with the family. I would suggest bringing a backpack or mini wagon since they allow snacks and drinks, just no glass. Splash pad is great for cooling off so bring a towel too maybe.
  • Great place to take the family. It has changed a lot since I was a kid. Also, they are planning to re vamp the zoo to be more reflective of the El Paso area. The ecology will be more of a Chihuahuan desert.
  • I really like all the improvements and additions that have been made since the last time I went years ago. They have lots of events and activities that go on to encourage people to make a stop at the zoo. All in all it's a good experience.
