This is not a big, elaborate zoo, but it is a pleasant, inexpensive place to visit. It seems very child friendly. I liked that it has almost entirely South American animals, making it a good place for tourists who are curious about native fauna but have little chance of seeing these animals in the wild.

This is a small but interesting zoo with a number of animals who seem content in their "home". The caretakers seem to be genuinely concerned about the well being of the animals. It was good to see some animals of Suriname.

This is a small zoo but very nicely set up. There are many beautiful birds and numerous monkey displays. The entrance fee is very reasonable

A well converted space for the animals. Even an island converted piece with monkeys (no cage whatsoever). Creating an almost untamed space for the animals. It was just lovely.

A must see if you are an animal lover. Peacocks, monkeys, deer, parrots, tucans, ant eaters and so much more. The monkeys and birds leave have figured ways out of their enclosures but ey still hang out.

The last couple off years, Paramaribo Zoo has worked really hard with Zoo's and foundations abroad to improve the quality of the Zoo, both the animals and the facilities. Lots of animals and a great place for kids.

As an American, I'm not a big fan of touristy, crowded, price gouging zoo's, therefore; Paramaribo Zoo was perfect. Only 10 SRD which is like $3 USD to enter. I made a right and started with the monkeys and made my way around. One of the workers was inside cutting down some bamboo for some animals to eat The leaves... More

Been there twice: ten years ago we chanced to see small anacondas just born going out of their cage into nearby bushes. That was a striking image. The second time was more ordinary. Each time we were able to see a nice set of wild animals one can't easily approach when walking in the jungle. The zoo can be compared... More
