Review:

If you want to take a break from the Strip and your kids like animals, it might be worthwhile spending one hour visiting the Southern Nevada Zoological Botanical Park. It is located just 15 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip and caters to families in Las Vegas.
This is the only Zoo in Las Vegas and has great educational value, with more than 150 species of animals. The mission of the zoo is to help educate children in developing a deeper understanding and appreciation for the uniqueness and beauty of the world around them and, at the same time, learn about endangered species and habitat protection.
Despite being called the Las Vegas Zoo, it is not funded by the city and therefore relies on private donations from visitors.
