Plan for sunscreen, walking and lots of water!!! The exhibits are amazing and the staff are too! We came with a Girl Scout troop they have many restrooms, wheel chair and electric scooters to rent.

The Memphis Zoo has done a great job over the last few years of renovating and growing the zoo to a first class experience for people of all ages. Great atmosphere and very well done with the different exhibits.
