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.

We toured the zoo one afternoon. The collection of animals was impressive, the grounds well kept, the grouping of the animals well designed. There was a good gift shop. My first sighting if pink flamingos.

Although I have been attracted by several movies, I have been here twice. Though there are few animals live, but exciting to see them in Hawaii in an Island. Maintenance is really good and located near to the beachside. High entrance fees especially for the foreigners. Good place to see though nothing much on exiting if you have visited a... More

A lovely little zoo, nice & shady and level walking. Good for a couple of hours wander, excellent for disabled and prams. A pity so many displays were closed for renovation and a few others animals not visible. Missed out on cheetah, hippo, reptiles, wild dogs, baboon, aardvark, so quite a bit. If all displays were open it would rate... More

Your pretty average zoo - had most animals you would normally see. A lot of the animals weren't on exhibition at the time of my visit which was slightly disappointing Also, a group of unsupervised kids were banging on the chimpanzee glass and irritating the chimps. Eventually the monkeys were banging on the glass back, I guess as an act... More

I guess I expected a lot more from this Zoo. But, I was highly disappointed when I took my daughter to this Zoo. It had very little animals, no activities for the kids and over priced for it to be a Small Zoo. It took us less than an hour to tour the facility. Not impressed at all. There is... More

We enjoyed the zoo. As we stayed across the road in queen kapiolani hotel it was very convenient for us. It's a small zoo. Could use a few more animals. The ones there had plenty of space . It's a well run zoo. Compared to the zoo in bejing which was a disgrace and sad for the poor animals this... More

Reasonable priced. I suggest hiring a stroller if you have little kids as there is a bit of walking. There is a variety of animals to see. Unfortunately the reptile enclosure was closed for renovations while we were there. Compared to the Zoo's in Australia I was surprised how dirty the water was in the enclosures so. I saw very...
