I visited this attraction really to just kill some time whilst in Hawaii. I found it fantastic value at only $14 each. It's very clean and the animals looked very happy and well cared for. Our visit lasted nearly 4 hours having seen all attractions. It may not be the largest zoo in the world but it was one of... More

Honolulu Zoo is one of those attractions that is deceptively quaint and enjoyable regardless of whether you visit with children, a couple or even on your own. Most recently I spent a morning wandering through the grounds while my less than energetic partner spent another beautiful a Waikiki day laying on the beach. On entering the zoo the multitude of...

We came to the zoo in February 2013. The collection of animals was great, in particular tortoises, which we were interested in seeing. We didn't see the ploughshare tortoises, which was the ones we wanted to see most. When we asked the zoo attendants, they said the tortoises were dead, not sure if they were just brushing us off or... More

A wonderful place to slowly wander around enjoying the many exhibits on show. We spent several hours there and although the reptile house was closed we saw plenty of other birds and animals. The many enormous trees at the Zoo provide good cover from Waikiki's heat and the many small pathways always seemed to lead to an interesting exhibit. We... More

It's all outside, so no relief from Waikiki's sun. There are many trees, so you can get some relief from the heat. The exhibits are well laid out, so the family had a good time.

Went to the zoo with my wife and kids and we all enjoyed it. Right when you walk in, you're greeted by pink flamingos, which my daughters absolutely loved. They had an amazing monkey exhibit, some of he largest turtles I've ever seen, and awesome tiger and giraffe exhibits. There is more open green space (lawn) than I've seen in... More

Loved walking around here. Animals are well kept, zoo staff were great and the price was very cheap. Food at the restaurant was well priced and great service. If your in Honolulu and you have spare time, make your way down to the zoo. You will not regret it.

Awesome wee zoo. Loved the stroller hire and the fact that the animals all feel very 'up close'. Will definitely visit again.

We visited with our 4 year old and 2 year old. Was good for their ages and was a cheap morning compared to our Zoo back home.
