Worth assigning half a day to visit this zoo. A number of different animals and shows to see, I would definitely recommend seeing the Dolphin show.

The zoo has a wide variety of animals and excellent facilities. However, one down side is that the enclosures for the animals are quite small and the penguin's water had run dry.

If you're staying in Lisbon you really must go to the zoo. There is a great range of animals and the dolphin show was amazing. The animals are really well looked after although see the bears last as it does make you sad...they didn't look so happy.

This zoo has a overhead stand up cable car ride that travels over the entire property, allowing bird's eye views of everything there. That made this a unique zoo experience. The dolphin show was excellent. Worth a visit.

I totally recommend! Friendly members of staff, various resting places and lots of animals to visit! After visiting the London Zoo a few months ago, I could not wait to visit the Lisbon Zoo! The children loved to see the Lions, calm and peaceful, the elephants and all the animals so well kept! There is a fantastic feeling in this... More

OK, it is older and funky in places but I have never seen such wonderful birds anywhere and I have been to many zoos.

The weather was glorious on the day we visited this quaint little zoo, The kids loved the cable car which is a little different, and the Dolphin show was well worth going for,we took advantage of the photos taken with the Macaws and Sealion which were 5 euros each.We all had a great day,
