If you’re looking for a top-notch animal adventure, you don’t have to travel to the savannas of South Africa or the rainforests of South America–just visit Omaha. According to USA Today readers, Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium is one of the best zoos in the United States. USA Today readers also rated Omaha’s Lee G. Simmons Wildlife Safari as one of the best in its class.
Omaha’s Zoo is home to the world’s largest indoor desert and North America’s largest indoor rainforest. The zoo recently added African Grasslands, a $73-million, 28-acre outdoor exhibit featuring breathtaking panoramic views and long vistas teeming with African wildlife such as white rhinos, cheetahs, lions and elephants.
