Gerry and I had a great afternoon at the Phoenix Zoo today.
There are great encounters & experiences at the Phoenix Zoo when you visit.
We visited their 4D Theater - which was a short 3D film with in seat and in theatre effects, on the Congo.
We also did something for the bucket list- and that was to ride a camel.
Isaac the camel was so well behaved and felt so soft.. but man he had a HARD back to sit on. Gerry said he had appreciation for anyone bareback riding them for any distance!
The zoo has so much to offer though. Other encounters & experiences at the Phoenix Zoo include: Harmony Farm's Red Barn and Discovery Farm, Giraffe Encounter, to feed one of the giraffes, the carousel and the polar slide- 200 feet of snow tubing fun!
We also just had to spend some time over at the orangutan enclosure. After watching Orangutan Jungle on Love Nature, we really fell in love with them, learning their habits and ways. It was so nice to be able to see them at the zoo. They were so cute covering themselves up with their blankies too. People really seemed to love spending time watching them too!
We even saw quite a few wild bunnies running around. These two hang around the elephant enclosure, sharing the remnants of food they have.
The day can be so full with all the walking you can leisurely do around the zoo, or shorten it up with a 25 minute Safari Cruiser guided ride.
Snacks, meals and drinks and more are plenty too, and the Desert Marketplace offers souvenirs and gifts.
We enjoyed our visit and wish to thank the Phoenix Zoo of Arizona for their hospitality. Gerry and I found all the staff we encountered very friendly and accommodating and loved the encounters & experiences at the Phoenix Zoo!
