The zoo is very close to a metro station and is easy to reach, just across the road. This is a fairly large zoo with plenty to see. There are feeding times throughout the day and two dolphin shows that are very good. There is a cable car ride that travels around the zoo, which was useful to get our... More

The animals that are housed here are amazing & by far some of the best views of certain animals I have seen. Unfortunately however I felt that some of these animals aren't given enough space. The zoo itself is beautiful & a throw back to a time that once was. For me, the day was ruined by other tourists constantly... More

Well organized, with lots of interesting different areas to explore. Dolphin show is unforgettable as also is flying birds. Not to miss as well sea lions feeding.

Wow! The size of the zoo is huge. Plenty of places to stop and take in the views or have a sit down and a picnic. Beautiful place to meander around with large open space - make sure you get the free map as its a real must have to get around. There's a free cable car ride where it... More

We enjoyed our day at the zoo with our two boys. Lots of animals they had never seen before, white Tiger, Cheetahs, Elephants, Koala but the hi-light for them was taking the cable car above the zoo. It's a surprisingly large zoo so this gives you an idea of where to head and get your bearings. The cabins are free... More

This was about my 6th visit to the zoo, I love it! There are lots of animals to see, interactive things to do for adults and children alike, and the shows (especially the dolphin show) are amazing. The zoo is clean, animals are healthy and it's an all round great zoo with lots to see and do, you'll be there... More

Instead of walking inside we first took a shutter service bus that runs around the zoo to get an idea how big the zoo was. One round trip was only 1euro. Saw nice views and animals and after that we took the cable car to see the view from the sky, nice and lovely. After that we planned the itenerary... More

Great zoo, you can really get up close and personal with the animals. They have a sky high tram that runs above the zoo and we enjoyed it so much that we went on it twice - it is free of charge to use. It is expensive but it's worth it as you are there all day. Dolphin show was... More

A large park with more than 2000 animals distributed in a very well organized mode. Plan is clear. The cable gives u an overview from the top that is a must do.
