4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

This place albeit not so big offers a variety of animals you cannot see in public zoos. a great alternative for children and the rest of the family to visit.

“Avalon Zoo Tries Hard.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

A long bus ride. Then tricycle. Not easy to find. Went mid-week. Arrived early. Very quiet. I like the ethos of the place. They could use more support. I'd like to see less concrete enclosures for some of the animals and an attempt at more natural habitat. Not a wasted trip.

“going to this zoo will help you understand the philippines”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

pretty clean but very run down and dated, limited animal selection, saved only by the extensive overhead green canopy typical in the phils, one elephant, four tigers, few other large animals, one "red faced" monkey from japan (probably over recent recall of Civics), one hundred or so red slider turtles, lots of crocs, lots of domestic cats running around.

if you have been to some good zoos, this one gives you some idea about how the philippine economy compares. the most exciting feature of this zoo is the proximity to a very busy street just over the wall and the continual wild screeches and screams of bus and truck brakes as heard from the zoo side of the wall gives an atmosphere of being surrounded by wild and crazy animals. sort of made the hair standup on my neck!!

“A Great Place For Animal Photography”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

You get to see a lot of exotic animals. The place was well kept and all the animals were very well taken cared of. The facilities are quite good. It is a good place for animal photography! Children and adult alike will surely enjoy a trip in this zoo

“Great Experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We had a great time at the Avilon zoo! The orangutan steals the show! I would go just to get photos with the animals and to feed them. That was very fun, you can feed flesh eating fish and all kinds of other animals. BE SURE TO BRING BUG REPELLENT! Or you will regret going there.
