    I really enjoyed my first visit to the Boise Zoo!There was a wide variety of animals to check out and the zoo wasn’t too crowded.I think one of my favorite things about the zoo is that it is AZA accredited, which basically means the zoo has gone to great lengths to ensure high standards for animal care/habitat, etc. are met. While I’m not a PETA crunchy granola hippie person, knowing the zoo really takes care of the animals rather than serving mainly to generate profit really is worth its weight in gold to me. Next time I’m in Boise, I’d certainly return!

    It’s a nice little zoo. Nothing like the size of Seattle or Portland, but when you are taking small children through it doesn’t feel like your hiking your way through an African safari on foot either. Lots of great animals to see and you can see it all.

    I used to work at the Bronx Zoo when I was in high school (which is huge!). Even though the Bronx Zoo is a lot bigger then Boise’s, I love the Boise zoo. It’s a cute little zoo, but there are animals here I haven’t even seen before! I also like a lot how you can get really close to the animals here too.

    Considering the zoo’s size, and the fact it’s in Boise, I didn’t expect a lot. Zoo Boise feels more like a big-city zoo, though, and didn’t disappoint. There is a large variety of animals, and the staff was knowledgeable and really seemed to care. The newer African exhibits, though sparse, were impressive. I fed a giraffe- pretty darn awesome 🙂

    It’s fun to go in the winter when there are hardly any people there and the penguins are super active.
