I went in the very end of November. Luckily, Denver is amazing and the weather was beautiful. They have a LOT of primates in this zoo, which is fantastic because they are just as interested in us as we are in them. Well, most of them - some of the gorillas couldn't be bothered by the hubbub. I got there around 10/11am and I was there until almost exactly 5. This is a large zoo with a lot to see and do.

Took a group of elementary students on a field trip to the zoo. Everyone had a great time, especially liked the monkeys if course. The zoo is clean and well kept. Easy to find your way around. It was a good day!

One of the best zoos we’ve been to. Try to go early in the day so the animals are not sleeping. The only downside was we went during several schools field trips!

I spent the day by myself and had a wonderful time. Got to see the elephant experience, which was really informative. Was interesting to see how they are trained and that they have lots of room and water to roam around. Visited the whole zoo and loved the giraffes of course. I like the variety of critters including the seals. There were a lot of school kids. The park around the zoo is beautiful.
