Being a senior who has difficulty walking long distances, I was thrilled to be able to rent a electric chair and get myself around to see everything I wanted, (about 2 hours). It as so beautiful with the foliage that seeing the animals was actually a side benefit. It was my first time and regardless of many of the exhibits not available, I was filled with joy and appreciation for the beauty and comfort in doing the various safaris. Because I had the electric chair, I was o.k. with the fact that the Africa Tram was not in service. I was alone and enjoyed a delicious healthy salad for lunch and easily got parking and left the premises without any trouble.

Lots of busses of schoolkids so we were really glad to bypass that. First bathroom is right at the front entrance. So many volunteers in red shirts to guide you and answer questions. Very nice shade trees for your sun protection along the paths. Be sure to wear a hat!

The animal exhibits were wonderful. The uphill and downhill layout was made easier for us older visitors with the availability of elevators and even an outdoor escalator.

It was ok a little crowded. Didn’t get to see all the animals because the zoo was too packed

Prepare for a lot of walking, stay hydrated and you’ll enjoy the best zoo that could exist.
