We don't normally do a zoo when visiting a city, but the monkeys asked for me, so I had to pay them a visit. It was the hottest day of our stay (June 4th), even though we arrived in the morning a lot of the animals were sleeping in the shade. They actually seemed to wake up more as it got later.
On the whole I thought it was a really nice zoo, with shady areas and reasonable food.

I brought my son and niece here and we had a great time looking at the animals. I like how it is spaced out and cannot wait for the elephant exhibit to open. A suggestion: I do not remember the name of the restaurant located in the swamp exhibit but please either find a more efficient way to fill food orders or open up more windows for people to order. Furthermore, you may want to figure out a way to take orders from people who only want a quick snack compared to the fried meals people ordered. It is somewhat difficult keeping two small children patiently waiting for a bag of chips and a drink.

This is my childhood happy place! Heck, this is my adult happy place! The zoo has many exhibits, and the animals look quite comfortable. The elephants are getting a re-modeled area. I am ready for that to be completed, because you can't see them right now. Where are all the alligators in the swamp exhibit? Seriously, there used to be tons and now there is just one? Bring a picnic if you choose and sit under the old oak trees. Lots of shade can be found. Also, visit the Roman Candy man. He is a New Orleans staple and it isn't a trip to the Zoo without having some Roman Candy! Note: Best times to visit would be during the Winter/Spring. The Zoo in the middle of a Louisiana Summer...I just wouldn't.

This zoo has a reputation for being one of the best in the world for a reason. After my 35 years of life on this planet living and growing up in and around New Orleans, I still come back for that visit back to my childhood AND never cease to be entertained, amazed and comforted. My favorite part of the zoo is and has always been the swamp part, where there is a boardwalk, a houseboat and several ponds filled with gators, gars, turtles and ducks. Sure, it's a little different after Katrina, but I think it's better! A whole family could EASILY spend an entire day in this zoo, especially if they take their time to actually enjoy the sights, look at the animals and enjoy each others' company. There are a few places where you can get some grub and the prices aren't too bad. The food isn't that bad either! I ALWAYS eat in the swamp cafe and get either some etouffee, or a crawfish pie and some fries. It's decent. Not the greatest, but not bad either. The animals are all well kept. The environments are usually kept free and clear of debris and litter (even though asshole patrons try their damnedest to clutter it up). The reptile house is kept nice and cool and the enclosures in there are very well done. Information about the animals are all very well displayed.
