Brought tickets on line while in Lisbon the day before we went. Easy travel by the Metro to the gates of the zoo. The 3 shows we watched (all free with the entrance ticket), Dolphins, Seals and Birds were very good although only spoken in Portuguese, this did not hamper the enjoyment. The cable car around the zoo is great... More

This was a great little find - a lovely peaceful park away from the busy streets and some amazing animals to see and interact with.

A very nice Zoo with a lot of animals. A place where you can spend a full day with family. Don't miss the dolphin's show, that is really nice. There are a couple shows every day and I was really surprised that are included in the entrance fee. Well done to the management! I also liked the fact that some... More

To be honest we were about to turn around and walk out as when we first arrived the zoo appeared deserted and closed, however Im glad we didnt as when we walked beyond McDonalds and a cafe we saw the proper entrance. The price was 19,50 euros for adults (12-64) and 14 euros for children (3-11). The enclosures were clean... More

I've been at the zoo for the whole day long in a warm day. It was great, the special events are well documented allowing to see them all. The Teleferico is great and allow us to have a nice view all over the park! Loved it all!

I was quite shocked at how small some of the cages were at Lisbon Zoo. The bird cages we really small for the amount of birds in them. Two parots were on the floor panting which was extremely distressing to see. We tried to find someone to report it to but no staff to be found. One cage had about... More

What I read about the zoo did not match my experience. It's a decent, medium-sized zoo which my kids and I traversed 3 times in about 4 hours. But don't go out of your way to visit it. We didn't get to see the dolphin show which seemed to be highly rated by other TripAdivsors. I do recommend that you... More

Lovely place to visit with children. But hire a push kid car so all the family can enjoy the journey. Good assortment of animals. Nice cable car but I found it risky hanging up high with my 2 and a half year old daughter. There are shows that go with the animals at particular times. There is also dolphins show... More
