The zoo has really improved. Great place for an afternoon date. Love the new Savanna exhibit, and food court with adult beverages.

I jointed the Chaffee Zoo before going as planned to visit it more after 25 years. Visiting grand daughter took it to it and she enjoyed it but better in Spring or Fall as from Santa Maria, Ca and it was hot for her.

The African Safari is beautiful! Got to see the elephants swimming, got up close and personal with a giraffe! A great zoo for a smaller town.
