We went to this zoo in December and loved it! The animals are very close to you (much closer than we are used to in American zoos), and because it was cold, they were very active. We only had 2 hours, so we ran to see the polar bear, the tigers, and the lions. I wish we had had much... More

Truly worthwhile a visit. The zoo has large territory for a nice half-a-day walk. Many large "cats" live there. But the favorites are the family of white bears.

Nice zoo with a lot of animals that we (I am from Brazil) are not used to see in our country! For example, the beautiful Ligre, wolves, and polar bear!! There was a big bonfire right in the entrance, to keep visitors warm. I would go again if I had the chance !

I recently moved to Novosibirsk to teach English. My wife and I visited the zoo on our day off and we didn't have time to see it all. It's all surrounded by forests with walking paths making it beautiful in the fall weather. Huge variety of animals too. I can't wait to try walking through it during the winter.

There are many train wagoons exhibited, each of which tells a different story. The only problem was the timing of the visit, which was right after a 30-hour Trans-Siberian ride, and I was sick of inner atmosphere of trains!

Being one or the only location in the world with new feline species. A lion mixed with a leopard for example.

I never imagined myself going to a zoo in the middle of Siberia but that was rather fun! It was a bit odd to be among a lot of russian children, but I saw a lot of animal which are rare in my home country.

Definitely best in Russia. Must for visit in Novosibirsk. Zoo is very large. It will take whole day there if you want to see all animals. There are places to eat just prepared Shashlyk for nice price. But it should be visited in Summer because in winter many animals live in warm places and not available for visitors. Some cages...
