  • I visited the Alexandria Zoo recently and I enjoyed every moment. It is a nice, beautiful clean zoo. There are Beautiful white tigers, eagles, lions among many other animals. Very nice. I love how the staff walks around and comment on the animals, they are also very friendly. I had a good time. Thank you
  • Awesome park. Cleanest and healthiest zoo/park I've seen. Animals are well-cared for in natural habitats. Prices are so reasonable you can't pass it up. Staff was extremely accommodating. They give them lots of treats. Animals looked very happy. They have some nice rare endangered animals that were displaced from their homes. Their signs are educational and also a cafe on premise. Highly recommend!
