Cats are always sleeping...

Just like every other zoo, the big cats are always sleeping :p Price is pretty much nothing for such a nice visit, family, friends or even solo, for "grounded" people ^^

TripAdvisor map misleads to a wrong location. Lost half of the day going there and walking back (few kilometers, no bus station)

Get off the beaten path, shed the streets and the bustle of the city and enjoy a commune with nature in the wild. From things that go slither in the dark to the big cats to a variety of beautiful birds, this is a must see. The butterfly house is amazing. The big cats are kept in check through natural... More

The best zoo in Brazil from the many ones I have visited in this country. The only zoo here where a respectful place is given to the animals. A huge and a great variety of animals to be seen!

They have lots of animals, which seem to be well kept. They could improve... More

The Brasilia Zoo is kind of nice, even featuring few animals compared to other zoos in big Brazilian cities, like São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. You can catch a glimpse of endangered species, like the mico-leão-dourado and mico-leão-da-cara-dourada, and enjoy spaces like the butterfly vivarium. Sure the country's capital could have a bigger, better zoo, but it is a... More

I kind of feel bad for the animals since they seemed so dry when I visited. The elephant´s skin was dry and not many animals to see
