There are so many animals to see and they all appear happy and well looked after which I think is always important when you visit a zoo. The feeding of the sea lions was amazing and the dolphin show in the arena was absolutely brilliant! Highlight has to be having a picture done with a sea lion, could not have... More

We spent a week in Lisbon and were looking to get away from the mobs of tourists for a family-oriented activity. Our family visited the zoo on a Thursday, which turned out to be a great decision. With the exception of several school groups, the zoo was not crowded. There were numerous times when we had entire exhibits all to... More

We spent 5 hours here with our kids aged 13 & 15 (teenagers!). Beautiful area, lots of animals to see, free sky tram, first class sea lion show.

Great little zoo, loved the cable car to give a birds eye view of the zoo, and the ability to get close to most of the animals. the catering stall's outside at very fair prices, and locality to metro station. more then an afternoon visit!

Great Zoo. Easy to go around, but big enough to have a great offer. The dolphin show is quite spectacular. Plenty of monkeys, chimpanzees and gorillas too. You can also see the rare Iberian lince.

This zoo is by no means one of the largest or newest however, what an amazing zoo it is. The animal shows were brilliant and a must while you're there. You are even able to observe 'back stage' from a viewing platform where the dolphins are kept when not performing. Very well priced and so glad we went!

We stayed in Lisbon for one night and had only a day and a half in the city, but decided to put aside some time to visit the zoo; we were not at all disappointed! We spent half a day here and enjoyed every minute! We paid the €38 euro (19 euro pp - adult) to enter the zoo at... More

We visited the zoo on May 8th. Does anyone know how the baby gorilla is? When we saw it in the compound the mother seemed to be having problems bonding with it. it was being dragged across the floor and the mother kept sitting on it. The poor baby was having problems walking. We found this to be very upsetting... More

Such a great day. We decided to visit while trying to kill a few hours before our flight home. Zoo is clean and tidy. Good selection of eateries. Animals seem happy and well looked after. Cable car is brilliant and the dolphin show beats those at sea world etc. really great place. Would love to return one day
