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

Well run zoo, lots of information for the children and quite hands on. You can feed some of the animals. Fairly priced restaurant.

Got to the zoo using the local bus which gave us two hours in the morning ; coffee on arrival set us up for a pleasant and mostly shady stroll among the animals and birds who all seemed to be well cared for and there was no sign of distress . No big animals . A pleasant morning or afternoon... More

Quite expensive as half a day is more than enough time to see this zoo, but very interactive for smaller children! Very surprising little zoo which our children loved with the miniature alligator and hippo and a great ape area who are most fascinating to watch!

I have been to the Zoo de Lagos on a small few occasions now. I love it. It's a small zoo, but it has lots of animals. There are lots of well-sized enclosures that do not seem to compromise the other spaces within the zoo (paths, etc). The animals seem well cared for and 'content'. A definite must for anyone... More

We went there on cloudy day, we hadn't heard great reviews about it..but wanted to see for ourselves.. To be honest, it was very enjoyable.. Very well laid out, many different animals, any amount of different birds.. And most importantly the kids loved it

We've been here twice now and thoroughly enjoyed both times. There s a good selection of animals to very and you can get quite close to most. The kids have a fabulous time. Only draw back is the restaurant which is ridiculously expensive for what it is. Never many people there-is it not known about or has it got bad... More

Not very big but maintained nicely. Lots of plans and interesting animals. Perfect place to bring kids, not a lot of walking involved, great photo opportunities. The staff is helpful. You will need GPS or directions - it is not on the main road.
