But don't go in the middle of the day - all the animals are sleeping!! Bit of a waste of money as the only animal our little one saw was a Giraffe.

While I visited the it was still under construction in some spots but this did not take away from the animals that they had on display. Ended up having a very memorial moment that resorted in bringing home a wild dog stuffed animal. When I come back can not wait to see all the changes and gorgeous animals again. *actual... More

We spent an afternoon here in March and really enjoyed ourselves! The grounds are beautiful and very well kept, and there are a ton of different animals and flowers to see. It's located in a great spot too, so we didn't have to travel too far from our downtown hotel to get there. I think no matter who you are,... More

Honolulu Zoo is such a sweet little establishment as it is picturesque and the animals appear to be well cared for and relaxed in their environments. Such a nice place to spend a few hours

I was very excited to visit the zoo while visiting my son and his family; however, after I arrived, I was very disappointed. It was small, which would have been ok if there were animals out. we only saw a handful of animals and paid close to $50 for the four of us to get into the zoo. It literally... More

Beautifully presented Zoo within walking distance from Waikiki Beach. It's quite small for a Zoo but we liked that as we actually got around to every exhibit rather than 'having enough' and going home prematurely. We loved the gardens too. Favourite animals were the lemurs, toucans and Fennec Foxes which we had to buy a soft toy version of from... More

What a lovely zoo. The animals all seemed very happy and content. There is a wide range of animals that are housed in sections relevant to their ethnicity. We spent a very enjoyable mid morning to early afternoon there. This zoo is quite small in the scheme of things but was very sufficient. Highlights for me were the elephants and... More

Not a huge zoo, but worth the trip. They had several species of animals, throughout the park and plenty resting stops. Great Children's petting zoo and kids friendly.

We enjoyed our time at the zoo, but we've been to better zoo's. I felt like some of the animals didn't have enough space & I don't like seeing that. It's not a big zoo, so you could easily do this alongside another thing on the same day. Carole : |

The zoo was rather old & rundown. There was a few good animals though like the giraffes, zebras & monkeys. The enclosures need renovating & the tiger enclosure needs a bigger swimming pond! A bit disappointing...
