I have been to zoos all over the world and this is the best that I have ever seen. I was very lucky that I went in a tourist slump as it meant that the zoo wasn't crowded at all. There were so many animals there I really was quite amazed. There were also grizzly bears and koalas, two animals... More

The price fee you will pay at the entrance it is high for the cost of living in Portugal, but they do not charge you for any of the other live shows inside or the time you can stay. It is a wonderful place to take you soul-mate to walk read, share a very wonderful day in the presence of... More

Enjoyed an entire day here. You can have a beautiful view of the entire zoo thanks to a fantastic aerial railway. Strongly recommend to see the reptile house and the primate temple. Here I've seen for the first time an Okapis. There are also two white tigers!

We spent here a Saturday afternoon with lively weather. Went by metro from Cais do Sodre to Jardim Zoologico, a 25 mins trip. The fee for adults was 19 euros, 13.5 euro for kids. The zoo looks very well, wide variety of animals and in very good shape. We especially enjoyed the teleferico tour above the zoo (Included in the... More

We went on a Monday and it was very quiet. Really lovely zoo with lots to see and some beautiful trees and plants. There were several shows to see, which were good, even if you don't understand Portuguese. It's very close to the tube station, but there isn't a lift, so prams have to be carried up a few stairs.

I'm an Animal Care student, and one of my teachers told us to visit the zoo of any city we visit, if it has one. I'm extremely happy I followed his advice. It was a great day out, with a variety of animals that I haven't seen in other zoos. If you love animals, it's definitely worth a visit.

Lisbon zoo is rich for animals from all places of earth. Even if you visited many zoos you will find something amusing and interesting. Some animals hide very well and you are to have patience to see nature's beauty.
