I recently visited this zoo and found it to be a huge improvement to how it was a few years ago. The animals look healthy and the new addition of the giraffes and Bengal tigers give locals a great appreciation and awareness of foreign animals which are all part of the circle of life.

There have been many improvements but more still needs to be done. This is the paradox of Zoos if there is a consistent stream of visitors then improvements can be made. But if improvements aren't made the visitors wouldn't come.

I came here 7 years ago, and was scared by how filthy all the cages were, and how sad the animals looked. They still have a long way to go, but the animals look happier and better treated, and the staff are friendlier and more happy to answer questions. As I said - there's still some ways to go, but...

I took my nieces and nephews to the zoo to see the Giraffes .. they are so cute !! It was really nice to be able to see in real life an animal not native to Trinidad and Tobago. We look forward to the arrival of the tigers !!!

Took a walk to the zoo today. $20tt adults $10tt children. The zoo is very small, however has a reasonable variety of inhabitants. Alligators, caimans, ocelot, birds of prey, cougar, howler, spider monkeys, 4 lions, a pony, fishes, butterflies, etc. Most of the cages were small and sad; around the lions the stench was horrendous, but I am happy to...

My family including one pre-teen and one toddler recently visited the Zoo and there were lots to see including a new pony that you could pet and groom once there was an attendant there. Included now is a small play park for the young ones. The signage is appropriate and there is lots of staff around and the Zoo has... More

I love going to the Emperor Valley Zoo. Every time I visit there is a new exhibit and something is always happening. The staff are knowledgeable and offer detailed information about each exhibit.
