A very nice organized Zoo. We were not expecting such big place! In case you have children with you recommended 100%. You can spend easily 3-4 very nice hours. Take a map from the entrance in order to make your life easier. Big plus is the museum of the Zoo showing the history of the animals and also the ancient... More

When traveling I have visited one or two zoos abroad and they weren't great but I decided to see this one in Budapest and it was very pleasant to walk around and see the animals all in good health and happy. The Kangaroos were my favourite. The botanical side of it made it really nice to walk around also .

Not one of the worst zoos I have seen but it was quite sad and small for the animals... very little environmental enrichment

This zoo is not like the one I'm used to, in some of the animal caves you could even walk! It's a very big zoo and you can easily spend the day here! Also, visit the entertainment park (entry included in ticket price of zoo)

This zoo is definitely one of the best I've ever been to, and the reason why is an obvious one: The animals seem to be treated with the care and attention they deserve. My only problem with the park sounds silly, but it might be relevant to some people: The food shops. The employees are very kind and the service... More

Huge zoo with lot of different kinds of animals, definitely worth a visit. When you enter the zoo make sure to take a map with you cause it is easy to miss things. Definitely worth a visit

Visited the zoo with a friend of mine which is really into reptiles, this area of the zoo was definitely one of the highlights together with some of the other beautiful animals. Avoid the restaurants within the park since the food was extremely bad...
