We are from DSM, IA. Came here for Mother’s Day. We went early which was good, started to get super packed around 2pm. It’s a good Zoo, a lot better than our local Zoo. Trinkets and food and drinks were pricey but expected. your kids will love the aquarium. Was pretty neat.
Definitely wear good walking shoes bc you’ll be walking for hours. Lots of fun. We rode the skylift which was fun. You go right over the rhinos and tigers. We did not eat there but looked expensive.
It was still a fun day. No polar bears there this time

If you haven't been to the Henry Doorly Zoo in the last 5 years, then you haven't seen the zoo. With major construction, it has been greatly transformed. THere is more space for animals to roam. Animal exhibits are being changed into groupings by the parts of the world they are native to. The Asian section is still under construction. There is a splash pool for kids where they can play among statues of whales and other sea creatures. There is a large adventure education/play area for kids. While you think of zoos as a place for animals, the HDZoo is working to grow and preserve endangered plants in Madagascar.

Omaha Zoo has a collection of various animal, bird and aquatic species. It was a fun trip. However, it is not possible to explore whole zoo in just one day. It is advised to take annual membership and explore it in multiple visits.

We went to the Henry Doorly Zoo when we were at the CWS in Omaha. Great zoo with many exhibits. The cat section(tigers, leopards, and other cats) was especially good. Be sure and ride the train or tram to see what is in the park. Adding more exhibits as we speak. A fantastic zoo and one not to miss when you are in Omaha.
