San Antonio Zoo
At the Africa Live! exhibit, see underwater views of hippos and Nile crocodiles. Trek to see okapi, African wild dog, dwarf mongoose, colobus monkey, a giant aviary, and a termite mound. The Savanna is an exciting exhibit that is home to three giraffes as well as birds and zebras. We also offer daily opportunities to feed at the interactive feeding station. At Kronkosky’s Tiny Tot Nature Spot, designed for kids under five, tiny explorers can dig, climb, get wet (bring your swim diapers), and get dirty as they uncover and discover nature’s wonders. Visit Amphibia to see anything from dart frogs to the tiniest salamanders and learn how you can help save amphibians of the world. At Big Cat Valley, home to a new lion habitat, guests can get face-to-face with these magnificent animals – making for an unforgettable, unique experience while visiting the zoo. You can also feed our flock of Caribbean flamingos, and come in close contact with beautiful and gregarious small parrots.

FRUSTRATING!

While buying tickets to the zoo on line is easy, it does NOT alleviate the long lines and confusion at the gates trying to get into the zoo. The multiple LONG lines to get into the zoo was a ZOO itself!!

Disappointed
Lisa_L
, Sep 2021
When I bought the tickets, there was an option for “English guide” and “English written.” I thought this gave us another perk. I asked two employees, once inside the zoo, and the second informed me it was “nothing.” It wasn’t clear to me where to go in order to “skip the line” at the zoo entrance. After I asked, I was told to follow the “ticket scan” signs, which we did, but only after waiting in line for awhile. Much to my dismay, we had to wait in a very long line to have our tickets scanned. So, I see no advantage to buying the “skip the line” tickets

An OK experience

We always love the zoo and were looking forward to seeing lions, tigers and gorillas. There were no adult elephants and the grass seemed like it needed to be watered. It was still an OK experience. I bought the $35 pic they took just to have a san antonio border but never again
