This is the best zoo in Colombia, so you must visit. You really an get closer to the animals than in the U.S., so that was pretty cool. The only complaint is the construction going on. From what I hear that is always happening to make the zoo better, so you have to deal with it. They were building an... More

There are many animals (including unique Colombian animal species), and the exhibits are clean and organized. Staff is friendly. It is worth it.

We had reservations about this zoo, as other zoos in Latin America have proven to be the worst kind - people throwing things and feeding animals, etc. Here there were many groups of noisy schoolchildren, but also several guides around to provide information and keep things under control. We had a nice long chat with one of them and asked... More

I am sometimes skeptical about zoos: I've seen some truly dispiriting ones. The Cali Zoo is certainly not one of these, in fact, quite the opposite.

Ther zoo is very pretty. You can see a lot of Colombia fauna and flora. I love the Mariposario, where you can see all kind on native butterflies. The monkeys are very fun to watch.

Compared to other Zoo´s I think it was equal to Fleisheker Zoo in San Francisco even though SF had more animals, birds and things to see. It was a natural tropical setting . Best of all was the butterflies of Colombia. If you like art there is Art in the natural sense.
