This by far is the best Zoo I've ever been to.(and I've been to quite a few some out of the US) It has everything you could ask for, plus clean, great places to eat. Nothing I can find wrong with it at all.

My wife is a zoo freak. This zoo is better than the denver zoo, San Diego zoo, or any other zoo we have been to.

We always love coming here. Facility is clean and well maintained. Staff is friendly. Tons of animals and exhibits. Gorillas are our favorite exhibit. Can’t wait to go back to see the new Asia exhibit in 2019!

The Omaha Zoo is large and well maintained. We went in the middle of the week after school had started so there were few visitors to compete with. Even so, we arrived just after opening and left when they closed at 6 PM. Very enjoyable...More

From a photographer's perspective, we had our camera bags and monopods. The day we were there, the zoo was packed and tripods would have been hard to use.
