We are fortunate enough to have been visiting Riverbanks for over 30 years, and we never tire of it. There is always a standout animal experience--bears playing, monkeys swinging, koalas awake, giraffes eating out of your hand, elephants grouping--and it is never the same visit twice. Our children and now our grandchildren love this zoo, and they also like the botanical garden. If you are a serious plant person, this is a wonderful place for you. If you are a kid, this is a great place to zig and zag and explore. We travel a lot and have visited other zoos and gardens using the reciprocal privileges. We appreciate the other experiences, but few come close to our exceptional Riverbanks. Wear comfortable shoes and plan to stay a while.
