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

So many animals to see here. They even have penguins and bears. But no elephants. My family and I really enjoyed our visit here since there are lot to see. The place just needs to add more restaurant and needs to improve their parking area because it's too dusty. The zoo just needs to add some animal shows once in... More

the was by far the best day out we have had this summer. Lots of animals, lots to see, and lots to entertain the kids. Of all the activities we did as a family this summer this was the best.

The place is big and clean, with lots of animals. The animals look healthy. My children enjoyed feeding the animals especially the giraffes, rabbits, and giant arpaima fishes. But be prepared to spend money because each container of food costs P50. You also have to pay when having photo ops with the animals, P50 per 2 shots using your gadget.... More

This is the best version of Avilon Zoo so far, since we first visited last 2009. Our family drop by Avilin every year since. Every year they always have something new, more animals and this year they made the place much better and organized. Our kids loves to feed the animals, this year the highlight of our visit are the... 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
