Best zoo in Europe?

I haven't been at all zoos at Europe but from ones I know this is best! You can spend whole day there watching animals. Also dolphin show is amazing.

We go to zoos whenever and wherever we can. Often, we have been very disappointed, as with the Paris Zoo. The Lisbon Zoo was a delightful surprise. There's a wide and interesting array of animals in good, animal friendly exhibits. If you go during the week during the school year, you're likely to meet children eager to try out their... More

The zoo has a range of animals to see and lots to explore! There is a small cable car which goes over the zoo itself and allows you to see the park from above with great views of Lisbon too! The dolphin show is a must see whilst there!

This is a place where you can have fun watching several of the most well known species, with family and friends. The space have all the needed conditions for eat and rest and the cable car gives you an amazing overview of the visit and of Lisbon, from top. The highest point of the visit is the dolphins show.

The Lisbon zoo is really a fantastic experience. The animal enclosures are great and there are more interactions with the animals, I was kissed by a sea lion! lol. The grounds are beautiful with nice rest areas. The best part, by far, is the areal cable car that takes a tour around the zoo from above! Amazing seeing all the... More

Great experience for all the family very enjoyable for both the adults and the children. We especially liked the aerian cable journey and the train ride around the park. Our daughter loved to see the elephants and the giraffes. Definitely worth visiting!

I like this zoo, am undecided to say if it's big or small... it certainly will take more than a full day to cover it all, even with the help of the aerial cable car that covers most of it. The trip on the cable car is really good, you go above many of the animal areas and can see... More

If you are in Lisbon, please take a look at the Lisbon zoo. It is really a good place to spend time with family, friends etc. Just one point to consider, the main attraction are not the animals per se, the main attraction are the inside shows with animal. Do not miss the Dolphins attractions which take about 30-45 minutes... More

This is a fantasic zoo! Well worth the 19 euros for an adult ticket as the dolphin show and cable car ride are both included. By far one of the nicest zoo's i've visited. They have a wide variety of animals which all appear to be well looked after. The dolphin show is really entertaining. Definitely worth a visit! 🐨🐻🐯
