AAA Editor Notes
Audubon Zoo is at 6500 Magazine St., adjacent to Audubon Park. Encompassing 58 acres of realistic habitats and more than 1,500 animals, the zoo is home to many rare and endangered species. Exhibits include the African Savanna; Asia; Watotu Walk; World of Primates; and Reptile Encounter, home to a Komodo dragon. Mayan temples and ruins are the setting for Jaguar Jungle.
The Louisiana Swamp Exhibit recreates the culture and wildlife of a 1930s Cajun settlement. The Swamp Train takes passengers on a tour of the zoo. Guests may go for a whirl on the Endangered Species Carousel, climb the rock wall or experience five adventures on the Safari Simulator Ride. Narrated feedings are offered daily.
