I bought an annual pass for the zoo because I enjoy walking it for both exercise and pleasure. This is by far the best way to fully appreciate the value of the zoo. The zoo is designed around the welfare of the animals rather than entertaining tourists. For this reason some of the animals may be difficult to spot on a single visit. I have found the animals to appear very healthy and happy in these natural like and spacious surroundings. I have enjoyed watching the grizzly snack on a watermelon and play in the water. The giraffe looks proud and yet elegant as he strolls around. The ostriches appears delighted to stroll around eyeing all of the curious spectators as he grazes in the spacious field. I especially enjoy the cheetahs. the 2nd one is hard to spot as he appear to be shy and when I have spotted him it has been in the outer more spacious cheetah area. The Lion feeding is my favourite as you can really appreciate how wild and fit they are as you watch them run after their lunch. The birds of prey show is also very entertaining. There is so much to see if you have the patience. I really appreciate the family atmosphere where you can bring your own bike or rent the 4 wheeler. They have nice shaded spots to eat your own lunch which my family appreciates. The walk is a pure delight. I have brought family members as well to the zoo and they share my appreciation for putting the animal's welfare first. Yes, as others have said, the zoos buildings could be spruced up a little but I care much less about that than watching the joyful zebras as they sometimes mozy up to the fence to greet me when I visit.
