Lisbon's zoo is good place to spend a day in. With the entry ticket which you are allowed to visit the whole parc, to attend the daulphins show which is wonderful and you get access to the "teleferic" from which you get awtestanding view of the zoo and the city around.

Visiting the zoo was by far my favourite part of my holiday and I loved the dolphin show!! I thought the price of 19.50 was very reasonable and I was so happy to find out there was a McDonalds there too!!

This has been my favourite zoo out of all the zoos I have visited. When we go on a city break we always try to visit that cities zoo if they have one. We absolutely loved this zoo, the dolphin show and the cable cars at no extra cost was just brilliant!

Visited this impressive zoo in February half term (UK) when it was quiet. It was a lovely sunny day however and it really did have a fabulous selection of animals. We were impressed with the Lynx programme, the gorilla was entertaining... Scratching his bum!, and I loved the meerkats :) Also the orang-utans a were delightful to watch and the... More

There's lots of shade under the trees and cheap places to eat and drink. Very family friendly and accessible. The displays are in Portuguese and English. It's not cheap but zoos never are (and probably shouldn't be...) This will keep everyone entertained for a whole day. We loved the koalas, white tigers and the monkey enclosures were really well designed.... More

We love to go to zoos when we travel and this was one of the good ones. Very nice variety of animals especially the white tigers and koalas were amazing. Great place to visit when in Lisbon with kids.

The jardim zoologico in Lisbon is one of the most beautiful zoos i have every been to. Additionally cool is: this zoo has Koalas! It is difficult to find a zoo that has Koalas, so this is already great and there is a great deal of other exotic animals in the zoo as well. The zoo isgreat for families, loners... More

A relatively small zoo, with some intersting animals. I would probably not put this on the must see list - either for zoos or sites in Lisbon but as our hotel was nearby and we had a morning to spend before our flight this was a nice option. The zoo is relatively small and it seems still in transition from... More

The variety of animals was a nice surprise and we even tried the cable cart. I think our daughter enjoyed the ride more than us. It was a bit unstable.. The dolphin show at tge Zoo was really nice and the sea lions were cute. We had a nice day and reaching the Zoo was easy.

This is a must see, whether you have children or not. If you go mid week and perhaps while the children are still in school, it will be fairly quiet. Don't miss the dolphin and sea lion display! Some hotels have discount vouchers for this Zoo so it's worth asking at reception.
