Highly recommend place to visit when you are in Lisbon. This is Hugh zoo with a lot of animals like lions, tigers, monkeys and even Dolphins (must see the show) and see lions (also a nice show on feeding time)... And also a lot of places to sit and relax with the kids.

We went in October, it was quiet but the weather was fantastic so we got to enjoy everything at our leisure with the best views. Dolphin show was starting as we entered which was great. It was all in Portugese however, no English translations during the show. A great collection of animals to see including big cats, bears, elephants, rhinos,... More

We visited in October 2014. One of many places we visited, we arrived at the beginning of the Dolphin show and were amazed! The Zoo takes about 3 hours to go around if you include the show, they do a lot of conservation work and really take care of the animals. We didn't take the cable car, it looked fun... More

The Zoo of Lisbon (easy acces by metro) is definitely worth a visit. The animals seem to be happy, it is nice to walk around and if you want to take a pause, try the teleferic and look at the animals from a new perspective. The have a dolphin show which is fun not only for the kids.

A lot of animals, dolphins show, wonderful people working there... If you're an animal lover and you want to learn more about them and see them - go for it! It takes almost an entire day to see everything.

We had a lot of fun, along with the oodles of Portuguese locals visiting the zoo with their kids. It's really lovely, but it is quite old and in need of some renovating. The people also smoke throughout the park, so this does take some getting use to... Really great spot watching the penguins swimming next to the really baby... More

The zoo is great. The staff was friendly, the animals looked healthy, and the Dolphin show was great. The only downside was that you didn't know the only Dolphin show was at 1500 until you actually walked through the gate. Otherwise, we loved it!

We visited this zoo as part as a Roy Caribbean excursion. We arrived at 10am, just as the zoo was opening, and there weren't many visitors apart from ourselves. We saw the 11am dolphin demonstration, which was absolutely brilliant. I don't speak Portuguese, but the story was easy to follow. The trainers spent a lot of time in the water... More

I had only 1 and 1/2 hour to see it all and I'm impressed. They have all the big cats, elephants, giraffes, zebras. Snakes too...

The Lisbon Zoo was a day we loved and will repeat. The Dolphin and sea-lion show was amazing. They also allow you to take photos with a sea-lion which goes down well with kids. The bird show is also really good. The zoo has a cable car which goes all around the Zoo and allows you to see the animals,... More
