“Great Time for the Kids”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

The Cape May Zoo is definitely a top 10 zoo and compares favorably to some of the most notable zoos in the country. Both the adults and the kids really enjoyed the zoo visit and it provided a quite and cool change from the beach. The pathways are shaded by large trees and the the zoo is well maintained. Admission is free. We made a donation to the zoo to help keep it in good shape.

“Fun Days”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Always an amazing time at the zoo... Wide variety of animals all well cared for. New exhibits are also being worked on right now to give visitors and animals alike the best. Always where we want to spend our time on days off, year round.

“Alot of Fun”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Cape May Zoo is a very fun place to visit. Another nice thing is most of the path are under trees so most of the area you walk in is shade.

We recently spent a few hours at the zoo and really enjoyed ourselves. Very well maintained and the landscaping is beautiful. Not to mention a wide variety of animals.

“A bit of Africa comes to South Jersey”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Tigers. Zebra. Bison. You name it --- the animal is at the Cape May Zoo. We enjoyed watching the animals and unique habitats and seeing the excitement on the faces of our friend's daughters. Young and old will enjoy this zoo. It's a true find!!!
