Went here with my mom, sister and 6 y/o nephew. We are all very satisfied with our Avilon zoo experience. I love that they have giraffe and white tiger. It was my first encounter with these animals. There's also a jaguar, leopard and a puma that I think other zoos in Manila don't have. The place is HUGE! it can... More

I went here with my 7 year old daughter and it was well worth it. Though make sure you research online how to get there because there are no signs until you are near the place. Take the Marikina - San Mateo - Rodriguez / Montalban road and just go straight. You'll eventually see a Total, and turn left. The... More

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
