Anyone who thinks this is a good zoo has not got a good comparison to make, there are FAR better. The enclosures are horrible, concrete everywhere, most of the land is reserved for humans not for the animals. The animals look unhealthy, and dirty. This really is a bad example of a zoo. Depressing.

Excellent collection of animals in spacious enclosures with vegetation. Spacious grounds were well kept and pathways of excellent standard. Catch bus from subway station - cheap. We walked down to zoo - nice walk, but felt too tired to walk back up hill, so caught bus. Panda exhibit was excellent. Both were pretty active, and the set out accommodated adults... More

I had a super day out in this zoo, the collection of animals was top class with almost every animal you expect to see in a city zoo: elephants, giraffes, rhinos, hippos, bears, lions, dolphins, koalas, even giant otters and pandas. The pandas had a small baby which was amazing to see, when it was playing around. Food was a... More

Even though we visited the zoo on a lovely busy Sunday and there were lots of people, the zoo didn't feel full. The architecture is spacious and there is lots of room to walk, lounge or eat something. Another plus was that there were lots of toilets available, a sometimes neglected facility The animals have roaming space and there is... More

We had a lovely day here today. A very good selection of animals in some lovely, spacious and fun enclosures. A great range of displays, talks and experiences. A bit pricey but worth it if you want a good day out.

Your experience will absolutely depend on your view of animals and whether you think they are there only for our entertainment. If you do think that, you will have a great day out. If, however, you view them as sentient and therefore worthy of respect, you will probably have a pretty bad day out. There are lots of animals to... More

Dear Sir, thank you for sharing your experience with us. About animal feed, our keepers and customer service staff are responsible for monitoring these behaviors not to be done. We also placed different kinds of panels prohibiting such activities. However, we appeal to the education and cooperation of the public to report such incidents to Zoo staff, which is periodically...

One of those where you can tell the animals are well-treated so the guilt of going need not be felt. A great variety of rare species including white tiger, white rhinos and giant pandas. Also placed in Casa de Campo, which is just an exceptional park and great place for a couple or family to spend the day.

23 Euros for adults; 19 Euros for "children" (aged 3-7) - be prepared to put down some money for this experience. Also please skip the monkeys - there are at least 100 of them in a cement area the size of a large backyard and it is one of the most depressing things I have ever seen. The dolphin show... More
