Suriname has one zoo and it is a bit small but fun and cozy. There are a lot of native animals which are nice to see up close. The Gonini is the biggest hawk of Suriname and recently added to the soo. There is a children's playground which they really enjoy.

My boyfriend and I agreed that this is definitely better than Guyana Zoo. The place is bigger than what I remember in comparsion. Umbrellas can be rented maybe money back when returned. There's also a display of anaconda snake, either dead or skinned alive (not sure).

The zoo was recently upgraded, whereby the walkways were improved.This is a huge improvement. It is now much easier to push the strollers. The zoo is clean amd it is a great place to go and spent quality time with your kid(s) and family. They have a simple and nice kids play gound area also.

Thank Henk C
