Founded in 1888, the Dallas Zoo was the first zoo in the Southwest and is the largest zoological experience in Texas. The Zoo’s 11-acre African Savanna habitat named “Giants of the Savanna,” is the only one in the country that integrates elephants, giraffes, impalas, zebras, ostriches, and guinea fowl all in one shared habitat. It was voted the third-best exhibit in the United States by USA Today’s 2015 10Best competition and is ranked as the best exhibit in Texas. The Zoo has earned four consecutive Certificate of Excellence awards from TripAdvisor, was named one of the “10 Amazing Zoos in the World” by MSN/Traveler, and was voted one of the top zoos in the country by USA Today 10Best competition in 2014.
