Our Auckland Zoo experience was a good one. There's a nice range of animals, the hiipos immersed in mud were cute and the flamingos were fascinating. Getting to the Zoo was easy by bus from Brittomart in the city, about 30 mins on any Western bound bus. The only criticism is that a few signposts pointing to what animals were... More

Compared to other international zoos, Auckland Zoo is tiny. It may be small, but its personal and absolutely fantastic! But, my daughter was amused to see the Giraffes, lions, hippo etc..

I was lucky enough to see the Cheetahs Osiris & Anubis out for their walk around the zoo it was magical to see them up close, I was also lucky enough to see Burma the elephant out for her walk. If you don't get your timing right however & see these animals "free roaming" it's still a really great zoo.... More

What can I say, its our local zoo. There are a good range of animals, some up close viewing, underwater viewing of sea lions, aquariums, native bird aviary a bandstand and picnic area. Well worth visiting

An old-fashioned zoo, not very big and with limited animals. If it's not feeding time quite boring. The giraffe enclosure and getting up close to them at feeding time is a highlight.

All the enclosures that are great for viewing and look natural. The animals are easy to see and there is fabulous variety. Each " area and habitat " is well maintained and love the NZ area great for oversea visitors. Food was average and expensive.
