Owner description: It's hard to find a zoo that creates a completely natural habitat for its animals, and the São Paulo Zoo is no exception. Still, staff try to provide a decent home for the more than 3,000 animals in their care, including local luminaries such as the Brazilian howler monkey and the red-breasted toucan. Tue-Sun 9am-5pm

“the jungle is here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

day or night the visit is wonderful. You can drive in the middle of the animals ad sometimes feed them and touch them. Kids love it and adults too. Must go. I go there at least twice a year

“You'd better be quite tall!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

The Zoo is pretty clean. Nice plan for kids. Nevertheless the way it's constructed difficults people to have a good view of the animals. Expect it to be pretty crowded on weekends.

“Its medium!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

If you know the San Diego Zoo in California or the Zoo of Sydney in Australia, don't waste time. Nothing wonderful.

“Considering the Size of São Paulo, should be a better attraction.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

The locations is already poor, ticket is expensive, so you expect to be amazed inside. that is not what happens. The tour is ok, but animals are too hard to find. Need an investment.

“Very poor place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

Personally, I dont like zoos in general, but there are some that are really interesting. The one in Singapore for example. This one is just a terrible place. Its usually crammed on warm days, the animals seem in poor condition, the dirt and smell is incredible and tere is nothing really special there to see.
