The 2011 addition of animals from Asia is extremely well done. The sections on African and North American animals are also done well.

A delightful place to spend a day. Wonderfully set up with great places to observe the animals in their natural habitats.

This is a great zoo. Lots of varieties of animals, gardens, exhibits, etc. If you're local, get an annual pass! Good at lots of other zoos and aquariums.

Norfolk has put a lot of money and effort into renovating the Zoo and adding impressive enclosures/exhibits. My grandkids always look forward to going and especially like riding the train. I highly recommend a visit!

This is a very small zoo. When you have seen the San Diego Zoo nothing compares. But it's entertaining for a few hours. Kids love it. And it is very reasonable. Students are free if you have an ID. Food is horrible. Do not plan to eat there.
