The Buffalo Zoo is a great zoo to visit. Shaded on a warm day, lots of interesting animals to see. It is easy to get to, plenty of parking and just a great way to spend a few hours.

I am always wary of visiting zoos, because I often wind up feeling sorry for the animal being penned up. The Buffalo Zoo has fairly roomy accommodations for the animals, with indoor and outdoor portions for the larger animals. The zoo is nicely laid out,...More

It's not a very big zoo. If you leave out the rainforest, tree house room, playground, and petting zoo, you can do it in under an hour. It's a nice place to just walk around.
