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).

A clean and tidy zoo with reasonable accommodation for the animals. Nicely laid out, my wife and I went late in the afternoon and when I questioned the 6pm closing time, she pleasantly replied that they would be open until sundown, later than 6pm. The peacocks put on a performance with three at a time in full display, one macaw... More

This is the only zoo we have seen where there were wild animals trying to get in the cages. We went to this zoo several times in our eight months in Suriname. It is well kept and not expensive. It also is never crowded and the animals are well cared for. You can see a number of animals that you... More

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.

A nice little zoo in Paramaribo - and the entrance fee is very cheap. 10 SRD for an adult! We spent almost 2H, had a baby with us, so we had to leave, could easily have spent 3 maybe 4 hours. It's true that the cages is small, and for some of the animals the cages is to small!! But... More

When visiting this zoo I was shocked to see the size of the cages that the big cats were living in... Workmen were laying new paths,this money would be better spent improving the living conditions of the animals...and maybe training for the staff in proper animal welfare.. Do Not Use the toilets DISGUSTING..

This zoo is a fun place for especially children and tourists. Here we got a lot from the large forests in Suriname. A very great variety of birds, apes and snakes.

Its small, but nice and cozy. When we visited they were working on renewing some of the paths, and it will be so nice, when they are done. Compared to other Zoos I have seen in this part of the world, this one really gives room to its animals. The Kwatta monkeys had a huge climbing construction, and the goats... More
