WILDS OF AFRICA:
As mentioned above, we were really delighted with the Monorail Safari. The Monorail Safari takes you on a narrated tour through six habitats. It lasts about 25 minutes and is well worth the time and the little expense they charge for this excursion. Please make note that the Monorail is open during seasonal times, from Sept. 15th through Dec. 1st. It then opens up again from March 1st to June 15th. We highly recommend this tour.
Although I’m not really fond of seeing animals held in captivity, we did enjoy two things at the Zoo North exhibit: 1) Zookeeper Talk Session, which we explained why above. 2) Snout Route.
A variety of animals with, you’ve got it, noses or snouts! A one-of-a-kind experience which deserves to be acknowledged.
LACERTE FAMILY CHILDREN’S ZOO:
If you have small children, then this is a must do. Some features in this area are:
We did not do this attraction since we didn’t have any small children with us. However, from a friend’s point of view, she said, "It shouldn’t be passed up for the little ones!!"
Our overall experience at the Dallas Zoo was very entertaining and delightful. If we had to choose between the Dallas Zoo or the Dallas World Aquarium, I would personally opt for the latter. Whichever choice you make, have a good time regardless!!
