Good day out for all the family plenty to do and see for all the family! All the animals seemed well feed and watered at least they are safe in the zoo were they in the wild they could be shot and killed and become extinct!

Modern and sofisticated, the Lisbon Zoo is the perfect place to spend a day with your family. The variety of species is vast and the housing of the animals is very good for a zoo in the middle of the city. You have a subway station right in front of it (Sete Rios). Enjoy!!

Reasonable entry fee. Plenty of cafes and places to sit. Cable car good way to see the zoo initially. Baby giraffe and gorilla family highlight of my visit. G old selection of animals. Families all appeared to be enjoying themselves. Very hot day so unfortunately most animals sleeping or in the shade so unable to see them. Enjoyable visit and... More

A lovely day out that felt like being in a resort as opposed to the capital city. Dolphin shows, cable car rides, great amenities. Easy to get to on the blue metro line.

I think this zoo is just a must visit if you are in Lisbon. Entrance is a bit expensive (19EUR per person) but it is worth. You won't have any problems finding zoo since metro brings you directly on the entrance. You will see many animals. I was impressed by the place those animals have since cages are really big...

This is the best Zoo I have ever visited, and is a must do if you visit Lisbon! You should buy a green card to use on public transport whilst in Lisbon, and catch the metro to the Zoo station. And do not forget sun cream! This Zoo has such a diverse animal selection and is huge in size, truly... More
