Great place for families of all ages! Seeing all the animals and attractions in one day and fully enjoying them almost isn't possible, so it's best to plan out the things you definitely want to see before you go so you can hit as many as possible if you're just going for a day. A train ride is a must in my book and was very informative and as always, so fun. We plan to hit the ski lift style skyfari next time, along with Stingray Beach which we didn't end up having time for. So very much to do and see at this zoo.
Also, for anyone with any mobility problems or limitations, I highly recommend renting an electric scooter for the day. It makes getting through the zoo with loved ones a breeze and without the hassle of any of them having to break themselves pushing you up the many hills and overall makes the experience far more enjoyable. Well worth the additional $28, hands down.
The giraffes, elephants, big cats, gorilla's and aquarium were big hits today, but we truly did enjoy the whole experience. All the staff was very friendly and helpful which only added to that joy.
Take note, this zoo is a bucket list zoo, named world's best zoo for a reason and if you can manage, I highly recommend hitting it on multiple days if you want to see and experience all there is to see and do. We will definitely be planning another trip sometime this summer and I can hardly wait.
Opted to just enjoy the day, so didn't take many pictures, but these two could not be passed up.
