  • We had a wonderful afternoon at the Brandywine Zoo recently and will make a point to go back again.The place is really good option to visit with family. I went here with my family and the children in our family were very happy with this place. They enjoyed themselves and got to learn so much. The kids were so happy that they keep on asking about our next visit. This is a wonderful place.
  • Love the red pandas and otters. My grandson and I visit frequently. Excellent parking and natural surroundings, with nice stream to sit or cool feet off at start or end of visit.
