I have not been to the zoo in over 4 years and I was very impressed with the changes. Such a fun day for all ages.

One of the best small zoos in Florida, easy to navigate and you can do it in a day. You will travel from one continent to the next as you traverse through the easy walk. Enjoy seeing and photographing animals without barriers.

The zoo itself is pretty big however, there are not a ton of animals unless you count all of the tiny fish. The habitats weren't overly kept up as we saw a child's bottle and other items within the cages...not where animals can get them...More

We went to the zoo today. We're locals and have been coming for 3 years. The new owners are killing this zoo. First thing we did was the African tram. They cut this ride down. We used to go through gates with animals all over....More

ZooTampa is definitely worth a stop in the St. Pete/Tampa area. It's got a great feel and smaller scale than the big theme parks. Much more of an authentic Florida experience.

It’s way too far and expensive to take public transportation to this Zoo. Stay in Orlando/ Kissimmee where there is so much to do.
