I had been looking forward to visiting Avilon Zoo - being on the outskirts of Manila and touting itself as the largest zoo of the city I had imagined it making use of the natural surroundings to provide pleasant and spacious environments for the animals. No. Concrete and more concrete will be a lasting impression (although there are some areas... More

I have been to the biological zoo in Singapore, the Night Safari, San Diego Zoo (both the regular zoo and the safari) and to several zoos in the Philippines. I would say hands down this is the best zoo in the Philippines and it is definitely at par with zoos around the world. The zoo is big, prepare to walk.... More

This Zoo is really a two thumbs up for me and my kids. Very Clean almost all the animals where here. Cool place because there lots of trees and plants which the zoo keepers water them three times per day. My kids enjoy feeding the animals and holding the animals. We all enjoy our visit hear.

Having been to several zoos/farms in the country (namely, Paradizoo, Manila Zoo, Bluroze, etc), my family agrees that the Avilon Zoo is the best or maybe one of the best zoos in the Philippines. They have a big variety of animals. There were white swans, ducks, alligators, crocodiles, peafowls, snakes, turtles, giraffes, tigers, marmoset, tapir, meerkats, arapaimas, black bears, monkeys,...

Our last visit to Avilon zoo was probably 10years ago. The traffic going was easy by Manila standards, Makati to Rodriguez took about 1.5hrs taking the Batasan route. The actual park time took us about 3hours visit. We saw lots of snakes, birds, pygmy hippo, zebra, giraffes, Black bear, crocodile, alligator, turtles, tortoise, urangutan, monkeys, cloud rats, farm animals, dogs,... More

Average trip to this zoo. Worth to go to the first time but won't have any reasons to come back for a second time.

Enjoyed our time at the Zoo. It's packed with wildlife! The kids loved the petting and feeding attractions. I found the giraffe feeding to be nice. I hope they continue to improve the place. A map of the place at strategic locations would be good, so you have an option not to avail of the tour guide. More food options... More

The facilities are clean and well-maintained; I see street sweepers and caretakers all around, even at the C.R. area. The enclosures are clean and well-maintained and the animals looks like they are properly taken care of. I didn't expect that the place is actually nice and clean, but it really is, and it's perfect for a family trip. Albeit it's... More

A good place, especially for children. The zoo is huge and there's a lot of plants and animals, of course. There's an entrance fee of 500 pesos person and if you want to hire a tour guide, you have to pay 400 pesos.
