  • We love this zoo! So many animals to see and you can see most in a morning which is perfect with little ones. Zookeepers are always friendly and willing to answer questions and seem to enjoy their jobs. It is so obvious that they really love the animals they care for (we love talking with the keepers of the orangutans). The Tropics has always been my favorite but their Australia and South America sections are definitely underrated stops during your trip. Worth the trip even if we didn't live so close!
  • A great place. One of the better zoos out there. It's a little slow as of right now as they are undergoing massive renovations on most all enclosures but still amazing overall. Plan to spend 5 or 6 hours if you truly want to see everything without a rush.
  • We're lucky to have one of the best zoos in the Midwest. Everytime I take a relative or friend from out of town, they are very impressed with the zoo. I absolutely love taking my daughter to the Sedgwick County Zoo. Her favorite area is the farm animal exhibits, and she loves feeding the goats. My favorite exhibits are the elephants, tigers, bald eagles, and bison
  • The public/walking grounds of the zoo were clean and well maintained. The animals seemed well taken care of and the enclosures were all well landscaped and clean. We dropped a child’s small blanket while in the reptile exhibit, and by the time we realized it the blanket had already been brought to the lost and found. So thankful!
  • Probably one of the BEST zoos I have ever been too. My family spent more time here than at any other zoo we've been too (6 hours) and still could have looked at more. The walk is wonderful and very flat which is nice. The exhibits are maintained nicely and are close in proximity (but not too close). We will be back.
