Omaha Stories and Tips

Creatures in pens

Henry Doorly Zoo Photo, Omaha, Nebraska

Henry Doorly boasts many acres of penned wildlife. Some of my favorite were the giraffes, ostriches, elephants and rhinos. It's strange seeing these exotic animals in the heart of a large city like Omaha.

The zoo itself is in a hilly area and is nicely landscaped. The pens are fairly large, but I'm sure by no means as large an area as what the animals native habitats might have been.

The aviary is a large oval, netted enclosure where one is able to wander on paths and bridges. A wide variety of birds fly about freely within the area.
