We were pleasantly surprised how good the zoo was. The kids got to get up close and personal with Wallabies (you go into their enclosure), bats, monkeys, Hypo, flamingoes, Turtles and lots more and they loved it. I was very impressed with the zoo. Great half day out for the kids (and adults).

Spent 4 hours here, with 12 and 3 year old kids. Small zoo, but fun enough for all. A little tired and run down. Would bring food, food options were limited and the cafes seemed dirty and chaotic. Fun fact: there are 2 birds nests in the handicap toilet.

This wonderful privately own zoo does lots of conservation work and is a great place to visit. The monkey islands are a highlight and there are a huge number of exotic birds throughout. Well worth the visit.

Went here two years ago and returned last month and found out that was even better. The fences allows us to touch many animals and photograph them. There's even a zone where we can interact with loose kangaroos. I'll return there when I pass in Lagos again.

The animals are extremely well looked after & the monkey & flamingo enclosures are the best I've ever seen!! Other zoos around the world should take a look. The animals all seemed very happy. I'd defiantly go again & It was great value for money & the kids loved it!

The zoo is very well kept and holds many animals. It allows you to get quite close to the animals and the enclosures are very nice and tidy. We spent about 3 hours there so it's great for half a day. There was a lot of shade and seating area in front of the enclosures. They might not have a... More

We were staying at the Hotel Sensimar in Lagos. Although our rep' wasn't able to help, we asked at the reception and they organised tickets and a taxi. After reading some reports on here we were surprised to find it was better than expected. The taxi fare from the hotel was 18euro and we allowed 4 hours and should have... More

We visited this zoo today with our 2yr old son as he usually enjoys seeing birds and animals. He wasn't disappointed, and despite some previous reviews being poor about the lack of animals, we thought it was a well laid out and well kept venue. Ok, it's not exactly the big 5 but still lots of fascinating wildlife - wallabies... More
