Drove west on I-80 out of Omaha this weekend, for a stop at the Henry Doorly Zoo’s Zoofari. Spring is in the air at the Zoofari. Only about half of the buffalo were out and about. It looked like they have are giving some of them their privacy, I would assume for calving season. Hopefully we will see the pitter patter of little hooves running up and down the hillside.
Of course there is much more to see and we plan on visiting throughout the summer.

This is one reason. It’s in the off season that you really get to take your time and enjoy “Being” at the Zoo. There are no crowds to wait for, move around, or stand in line waiting for other to move out of your way. It’s only now in the dead of winter that you can take time to sit and watch in peace and quite, to see really see how the animal behave. If you think there is no differnce, than you have not been at the Zoo on a quite day.

Wondering what to do on a cold winter day? What to do with the kids who seem to be bouncing off the wall? It’s too cold for them to play outside for more than 10 mintues, and you looking for someplace warm to go? Why not load everyone up and head on over to the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo! If you happen to live in the Omaha Nebraska area, what are you waiting for? If you live outsdie the Omaha area and you are looking for an overnight winter get-a-way, what could be better than heading to the jungle, the ocean, the desert all in the same overnight trip. That’s right, you will find all of this and more at the Henry Doorly Zoo. And lets not forget about one of the largest collection of Big Cat’s in the country. So, what are you waiting for, see you there!

Has it been a while since you visited the Henry Doorly Zoo? Or, perhaps you have never been to the Omaha zoo? If you have never been, you are in for a surprise and a huge treat! If you just haven’t been back to the zoo a couple of years, you will find a number of new additions and changes. If there is one thing I have seen over the years, it is that the Henry Doorly Zoo is not one of those places that once you have seen it, you’ve seen it all. This is one zoo that has managed to grow and change on an ongoing basis, being the premiere zoo that it is.
So if you are in Omaha to see a little College World Series, or some Olympic Swim Trials, and you looking for even more to see, be sure to put the Henry Doorly Zoo on your bucket list!
The latest change has been an update to the aquarium which has added even more exhibits than in the past. So, stick around an extra day if needed, as this is one of the sights you will want to see again and again.

Winter is a GREAT Time to visit the Henry Doorly Zoo. Travel from the Jungle depths, to the Desert, to dark Caves and Swamps, and then swing by the Primates! And if that is not enough, get some popcorn and see a 3D film at the Imax!

We took a drive to the zoo in late August and had a great time walking around with the grandkids and their mommie. We were quite surprised at the number of flowers in bloom. August and September, is the great variety season of colors in Nebraska. Here is a sample of just a few of the flowers we ran across. So as you see, there is more to see than just the animals at the Henry Doorly Zoo.
