The Cape May Zoo is a wonderful zoo. The zoo is free but they request a donation to keep the zoo operating. We usually give $10.00 per car. Most of the animals are housed in open habitats, a few are in cages. Most of the zoo, especially the “Savanna”, is viewed from raised walkways where you peer down on the animals. The zoo is set among the trees so there is plenty of shade for hot summer days. The zoo is well maintained and extremely clean. There were plenty of zookeepers walking around who were friendly and happy to answer questions regarding the animals. Located outside of the zoo’s entrance are multiple playgrounds and picnic areas. This is the perfect place to take young children for a few hours, especially on a cool, overcast day when you cannot go to the beach. The zoo closes at 4:45 p.m., however, they start putting the animals “to bed” around 3:30 p.m., meaning they move the animals inside out of view. We arrived at 3:00 p.m. to tour the zoo thinking we had plenty of time. By the time we reached the Savanna, they had already moved the baby giraffes and baby bison inside. The Amur tiger also had been “put to bed” and we missed out on seeing him.
