Visited the zoo during our two week vacation. The zoo is great place to spend a couple of hours. Its not that big but does have a wide variety of animals to keep everyone entertained. The zoo also has a great old tracker that our 2 year old loved very much. Only real negative was as we were leaving we... More

This is by far the best zoo I have ever been to! I loved the fact that the animals had big spacious areas to roam around. The monkeys had their own islands and were showing off swinging through the trees- it is nice to see the animals looking content (unlike a lot of zoos you visit). There was a good... More

A lovely little zoo with enough for a few hours of entertainment. Our two year old, four year old and fifteen year old enjoyed it. It is mainly shaded by trees too so not to hot. We would recommend this to any families. Most places offer discounts too so look out for them.

Seriously walked around it in 1 hour ( Lunch included ) Apart from 2 hippo's and some monkeys there were a lot of birds and farm animals. Not really our Idea of a Zoo. Food there in the snack bar is shocking too, frozen Pizza from the supermarket, for €8!!!

Not the best zoo that we have been to but a nice way to spend a few hours. The park itself is relatively small compared to some that we have visited, but the animals they have are well kept and the area is well laid out. Worth a visit.

Lagos Zoo exceeded our expectations by far. I generally hate zoos and the thought of animals in captivity abhors me but Lagos Zoo is very refreshing in its approach. You wont find big game animals here so no lions, tigers, elephants and the like. The biggest animal is a hippo and the rest are mainly monkeys and apes with lots... More

We visited the zoo today with our 2 year old and all enjoyed ourselves. Under 4s are free. 16€ for adults (for those saying it's expensive, ALL zoos are, they cost a lot to run). It was clean, well maintained, info on animals in English and Portuguese. We spent 3 hours there and could have easily extended that with lunch... More

This is more of a small animal zoo - don't expect lions and giraffes. Clean and well kept with plenty of information about the animals in a varity of languages. The keepers are very knowledgeable and helpful. Good access for buggies and wheelchairs. It was nice to see the "monkey islands" instead of them being in cages. There was a... More

You can easily spend a morning or afternoon here as long as you don't rush round, it's largely birds and farm animals but there are monkeys, hippos too. Good for families with young children, we took a picnic although there are places to eat aswell. We thought it was quite expensive for what it is but most importantly the animals... More
