More like a petting zoo, its a bit small for the animals, so its like old fashioned Zoo in that regard. But I can see that the Zoo is trying to get people to connect with the animals. Sadly I wouldn't recommend going here it wasnt for me.

I was in Buenos Aires for a whole month, and I think I can honestly say that one of my favorite days was a day at this zoo (not sure if this is sad or not). And yes, my boyfriend and I are both adults without kids. What makes this zoo special from the rest is that you can feed... More

Perhaps the best, most Porteño thing you can do with your kids. A very hands-on zoo. You can feed almost everything and hand-feed and pet Maras, goats, ducks, Coipo (if you dare). Marvel at the beauty of the decaying Victorian wrought-iron cages (especially the Condor cage). There is still much work to do here but it truly is a “Don’t... More

Parts of the zoo look good and years ago I am sure it was a great place but international zoos have moved on and this place is stuck in time in many regards. You can see animals up close but enclosures are small and there is nothing to stimulate many animals especially the primates who looked particularly sad!

The zoo was nice, they had white tiger cubs which were definitely the highlight, the bird cages and a few other exhibits are in need of a bit of a make over but overall it was a fun few hours. You can also buy food and feed most of the animals, the giraffes come right up to the fence and... More

We didn’t manage to visit all the ‘places to see’ yesterday so we returned to Palermo for another long day. Our first stop was the zoo. The Buenos Aires Zoo is an 45-acre park, one of the many large parks, including the Botanic Garden and Japanese Garden and green spaces at the northern edge of Buenos Aires and bordering the... More

The Buenos Aires Zoo is a typical probe that animals should be left in their original environments. The Zoo is old, dirty, animals are old too and cages are inappropriate. Don't take your childrens there, they'll feel sorry and pity for the animals. There are plenty of others places to go in Buenos Aires... don't visit the Zoo!

The capybara we roaming about the zoo together with the peacocks. The whole place was a little tired but we loves the old buildings and animals we haven't seen traditionally in zoos like anteaters, lamas and vultures.
