“Lovely small zoo.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I was actually pleasantly surprised by this zoo, I thought it was going to be very small but it was bigger than I imagined. Don't go expecting Elephants and giraffes this is more about birds and small primates. It was a good afternoon out in pleasant surroundings. We ate in the snack bar which was surprisingly tasty and well cooked for burgers and hotdogs etc.

“Wonderful zoo in Lagos with Lemurs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

Had a wonderful time visiting the zoo. Animals have space to move and the exhibits are clean and inviting to visitors. The highlights are the lemurs, flying foxes, gibbons, and capuchin monkeys. I don't usually go to zoos because it's depressing to see animals crammed in small spaces, but that's not the case with zoo Lagos.

“Nice Zoo but miles away from Lagos City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We spend nearly 2 hours in this nice zoo which is actually miles away from Lagos and we were lucky to find it. Not many road signs indicate the site. Nevertheless we had a good time there and manage to nearly all the enclosures before we had a terrific rainstorm. The animals are well kept and looked after. There are boards in Portuguese and English explaining where the animals live in the world. The snack bar was closed in October.
