Excellent place for families to enjoy a great day! Best time of the year is Spring between September and November.

Although this zoo is a little down-at-heels, like so much in Buenos Aires, the animals appear well cared for. The park is lovely and there are many benches scattered around for the weary. The best thing about the zoo is the architecture. Whoever built it loved follies and nearly every enclosure has one nearby. There are follies of every description,... More

This was a nice relaxed day out in pleasant surroundings. The price was more than we were expecting, lonely planet had quoted 40 pesos per person (2011) but it was actually 130, so nearly four times the price. I thought the enclosures were of a good size but there were some animals that were pacing, which can be a little... More

Buenos Aires' Zoo is a good place to go with kids! It is located very close to Plaza Italia (that offers options of transportation) and to the Botanical Garden. There, you will be able to feed some animals (actually, some of them are free, out of the cages). Besides, it has a lot of space to play, and a good... More

The BsAs Zoo main draw for me would be its central location within the city, making it easy to access. It is a typical zoo, although clearly no longer in its heyday. Everything looks rundown and feels dated, but the animals are sure to please. There is a carousel kids can ride (again, it creaks and groans as though the... More

The zoo is a good stop in a family trip because children will enjoy so much feeding animals and find lots of species. The zoo is very beautiful to take some good photos (for people who like photos).

We went to the zoo on a sunny Tuesday in October. It was by no means busy and at first it did not seem much, but as we got further into the site, we were met by an array of different animals. There was a great variety, but there was also lots of empty and run down enclosures. One highlight... More

Spent the afternoon at the zoo - I took more photos of the wonderful ornate buildings than the animals who I felt very sorry for - in small, out of date enclosures with little in the form of stimulation. A total shame because with investment it could be a no 1 attraction.

A number of the houses are closed and empty and some of the larger animals do not seem very happy . The brown bear just ran round in circles and looked stir crazy . Ok for a nice pleasant place to visit in the city , but not so good for animal lovers if you are used to safari parks
