The Denver Zoo has been struggling since the pandemic and stay at home orders. Just bringing in enough money to care for the animals has been a strain. In order to reopen the zoo needed to put some social distancing measures in place and I must say they did a fantastic job. Reservations are required with timed entry and enforcement of 50% capacity. Foot traffic was one way and the routes were clearly marked making it easy to navigate. The indoor exhibits remain closed. We chose to take a Friday off for our safari, with a 9:00 am reservation. We wanted to make sure we gained entry early to view the animals before the temperatures began to soar. We have been experiencing a heat wave in Colorado, temperatures in the upper 90s. It has been baking hot!
