- Type: Zoos/Aquariums
NileGuide Expert Says:
The public is allowed to feed the giraffes daily. Besides the polar bears, this may be the zoo’s biggest attraction.
Although small and overshadowed by the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, the Reid Park Zoo makes a fun in-town destination if you have the kids along. The zoo has good Africa, Asia, and South America enclosures that include African and Asian elephants, white rhinoceroses, giraffes, anteaters, capybaras (the largest rodents in the world), and rheas (sort of like ostriches). Get here early, when the animals are more active and before the crowds hit. If you've got the kids along, there's a good playground in the adjacent park.
