Get there early, as it can be very hot and animals don't want to come out in the heat of the day. Also go to the animal demos/feedings. They are very educational, the zoo keepers are all very friendly and explain how the animals were rescued and brought to there forever homes. My entire family enjoyed this zoo, the exhibits are close up and you can even feed some of the animals in the exhibits. My daughters favorite was Bennie the Binturong, he came right to us when we called his name.

It is a very natural setting no paved walkways dirt and gravel. I would recommend a large wheeled stroller if you plan on using one. Read the signs at each enclosure the stories of how each animal came to the Zoo are listed along with names and ages for most.

~If you need to bring a stroller, make sure it's an all-terrain stroller. Pack water & wet wipes to clean up after a hot, dusty day. Snacks & drinks are also allowed. Staff is extremely friendly.

Be sure to buy a bag of animal feed from the gift shop. The goats and deer love the food and they are very gentle and friendly. The employees at Austin Zoo love the animals and they are very informative.

Wear very comfortable shoes and bring plenty of water.. you may also want to bring a small backpack of snacks in case you want to eat there too... my friend and I went and we stay for almost half a day.... but it was worth it. .. we really enjoyed it

Pack a lunch and go early because they have a lot of training demos before noon.

From Our Editors

When animals need rescue or rehabilitation, the staff from Austin Zoo steps in. So, while visitors might find exotic beasts such as jaguars, capuchin monkeys, and african bullfrogs in this menagerie, they’re also likely to find domestic creatures as well, including potbellied pigs and goats. Many of these residents can also be seen while cruising around the 15-acre grounds in a miniature train.
