The thing we LOVE about zoos, is that you can travel around the world - without having to leave your state!
Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo lets kids explore the animals of the world, all in the one place. It's pretty amazing! The zoo gives kids a chance to get face to face with some of the most weird and wonderful creatures we have on this planet, AND they can learn all about them as they go!
They can discover endangered and rare animals as they make their way around the various exhibits, such as the fascinating Expedition Madagascar. Ever wondered what lies at the bottom of the ocean? Check out the Scott Aquarium where you can walk on the bottom of the ocean and come face to face (well - nose to nose!) with some very curious creatures like the sea turtles.
It's pretty exhilarating to have the sharks circle above you!
From the ocean to the forest with the Hubbard Orang-utan Forest and Gorilla Valley. It's a magical place where the gorillas roam free, and kids can watch these amazing creatures in a natural habitat.
The whole family will love immersing themselves in the largest indoor rainforest...in the entire country (pretty impressive!), and Henry Doorly Zoo also has the WORLD's largest indoor desert! Desert Dome is an amazing experience where kids can transport themselves into a world of mystery and Arabian nights!
Of course, Henry Doorly Zoo has all the favorites - from lions, tigers, bears (oh my!), as well as giraffes, rhinos...the list goes on!
Choo Choo! What's that? A train at a zoo? You bet there is! The Zoo Railroad gives the family a chance to ride on a steam locomotive, and get a view of the zoo from a whole new angle! With a fun carousel as well, there is certainly enough at the zoo to fill your family day out - maybe even two!
Roaring good fun!
