The Zoo belongs to a foundation whose mission is improving the animals' diet and natural environment and promoting the care of native flora and fauna. It has a collection of species indigenous to Colombia and... More

A pretty good zoo in terms of variety and animal enclosures. The upkeep seems pretty good and it's an attractive place. Could do with more guides around and people to maintain order when there are school trips cos Jesus Christ are the school kids here loud.

Nice Zoo but nothing special, I think if you are in south america there are many places to discover a lot of the animals you can see in the zoo in free nature what we think is quite more impressive ...

Loved the zoo as did the boys. There was an Australian exhibit and the boys loved the Kangaroos. Great food selection for lunch and snacks.

Very pretty place with lots of beautiful animals! It's not quite as impressive as some zoos I've been to but it's definitely worth a day trip in Cali. A lot of fun and very beautiful :)

Beautiful animals in a beautiful place! The only problem is that non of the signs is in english, so to read the signs, you'll have to know spanish. But I don't really read the signs, so it didn't matter to me
