Located in Prentiss Place, the Memphis Zoo is a family attraction with a wide variety of animals from across the globe.

The giant panda, who is called Yaya was the main attraction of our visit, beside the live animals shows. We were really lucky that we could see the animals, because if it is a hot day, then they try to hide away from the sun, but the day we went the sky was cloudy; we were also allowed to feed some of the animals too, so it was a worthwhile trip.

Address:
2000 Prentiss Ln, Memphis, TN 38112, USA

Price:
$15 for adults and $10 for children.

Opening Hours:
