“Nice Zoo, One of SA's Best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

One of South America's best zoos was definitely worth a visit. Butterfly enclosure was underwhelming but monkeys we're quite friendly. The zoo is very green and a good half day visit but not exceptional compared to some fantastic zoos seen internationally.

At the time of visit the white tiger was not present.

“Zoológico de Cali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

A must see in the City... Very nice and organized way to see some tropical animals in their well done ecosystems. The aviarium is very good, I enjoyed being surrounded by tropical birds and even have one or to step on your shoulder or head. To thumbs up...

“Incredible place to visit while in Cali!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

I am not that keen on zoos and seeing animals in cages but this is a wonderful place to see local flora and fauna, animals, butterflies, an ant show, an aquarium, south american birds and many other wonderful things. I would highly recommend it. It is known to be the best zoo in Latin America and all proceeds go to the zoo and research done there.

“Nice zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

One of the largest in south america, it specializes in local species and is quite humane and involved in conservation. Nice neighborhood too. Easy to access by Mio.
