It was quite a challenge to get to this place, especially when it's raining because you have to cross a mini-river. The zoo is quite interesting. The animals were all sleeping and seemed lazy, maybe because of the weather. They are offering the services of a tour guide (I think you have to pay extra but it's worth it). The... More

By far the most number of animals you can get up close to. The place was so large you would be the one giving up and wishing there was a short cut should you decide to cut the visit. My favorite thing was our seeing the tigers and feeding the giraffe up close. I hope we can get some assurance... More

Our family visited Avilon zoo last Dec. 27. I bought from metrodeal night before our visit and got ~50% discount as the walk-in price is P600 per person but metrodeal price is P309 only. All kids and adults enjoyed the trip. We loved the animals although it was a bit tiring since you have to walk for 3 hours in... More

I am never excited going to the zoo because of my previous experience with Manila Zoo and Malabon Zoo. But I was surprised this zoo is different from the above mentioned, everything is well organized, clean and theres no stinky smell unlike the other two. Even the comfort rooms are clean. The staff are approachable and friendly. One tip though,... More

Went to the zoo with my daughter and grandson during the holidays and, fortunately, traffic was mild :) The zoo has a wide variety of animals, reptiles and birds. The tigers, leopards, bears, and other carnivores, appeared well-fed. The zoo was clean and not as smelly, except for the farm animals area. However, they did not have a map of... More

I chapparoned a field trip to Avilon Zoo for my son and daughter. I was so impressed with the facility. It was clean, and the animals had clean living areas as well. The only exception was the little food vendor area. They sell popcorn, candy, pizza, hotdogs. Nice selection, but the area looks like a Fly Exhibit! Flies everywhere, millions... More

I love animals from largest to smallest that almost a microscope can only see. I am amazed to see how they are created. When I was inside the zoo, I realize I haven't move on with my childhood, I felt I was back to my grade school years, if only I can jump while running from one cage to another... More
