From pink flamingos to African giraffes, the Honolulu Zoo is home to a little bit of everything from the animal kingdom. Its animal population includes more than 64 reptile, 38 mammal and 160 bird species. The 42-acre facility is organized into three tropical ecological zones: Tropical Rainforests, Pacific Islands and the African Savanna. Among its highlights is a new $12-million, 1.5-acre Asian tropical elephant exhibit that includes a 7,260-squre-foot holding area and two 55,000-gallon pools.

Went to the Zoo in Honolulu since the kids wanted to see the monkeys. It was very relaxing in some areas where they had shade and some benches. As long as you can walk it, it sure is worth it. Just like your average zoo with the birds and elephants and monkeys and the peacocks. They have a section where... More

Truthfully, I was not looking forward to going to this zoo, but others in my group wanted to go, so I went along. IT WAS FUN! It was so much better than I expected it to be. A great array of animals and birds, much information about them all. It was really very interesting, I could have spent several more... More

It is a beautifully laid out zoo, with really stunning trees, the Rainbow Gums especially were gorgeous. There are plenty of places to sit and rest out of the heat. There are lots of animals on exhibit, some are closed under maintenance but that is only a smallest part, there is plenty enough to see, and lots of beautiful birds.... More

Zoo was very clean and easy to walk around. Particularly liked the open garden space and the food/restaurant area was great value. Exhibits were clean and animals were quite active.

Many "exhibits" were empty or roped off. Many of the bird cages had the same birds over and over in with others. Sign outside a large Toucan cage asked visitors to keep quiet as a new arrival was being socialised with the public. the bird was sitting at the top of the cage - a staff-member meanwhile was using a...

The zoo is a lovely way to spend the afternoon, it is clean, well planned out and you are very close to many cool animals. The petting area is a favorite of mine with all of the animals named, check out Raphael. The goats are friendly and I love, love, love Lani Moo the cow. She is friendly and always... More
