    Kingdoms of the Night is very cool...but please do not use flash photography! Many of the animals are very sensitive to light and they will hide from view when they see a bright flash.

  • Vanessa D.

    Prairie Dog Hill...so cute, they walk right up to you! Just don't touch or feed them.

    A definite must if you are ever in Omaha. Been going here since I was barely old enough to know the difference between a rhino and an elephant!

    Don't leave without visiting the swamp and the nocturnal animals. It's the coolest place there!

    Amazing zoo. We bought a pass because with my family it was paid for in two trips. But we go again and again. Totally worth it. It took several trips for us to see everything.

    This zoo has grown over the years as Omaha's wealth has exploded with three billionaires living in the city. Easily one of the world's best zoos.

    Love the zoo. So many great things GS to see and do. I could sit and watch the sharks all day.

    Allison Brown-Corson · December 31, 2013
  • Christine H.

    If you usually visit in the morning, try coming by in the afternoon (or visa versa). You get to see a lot of different animal behaviors at different times of day!

    Christine Hawks · December 19, 2013
  • Sara K.

    I loved this zoo but I wish the big cat exhibits were a little nicer.

    This is a great place the best zoo I have ever seen by far if you are in Omaha this is a must see but take at least an entire day there is so much to see

    Take the sky tram (to your right when you walk in) to the back and work your way forward--less crowds and great views of animals on the tram!

    We enjoyed so much there yesterday!
