We headed here on our last day in New Zealand, and we're thrilled with the experience. The crowds are manageable, the animals look to be in great hands, and the price is very reasonable. From animals across the world, you're sure to find a few new favorites. I loved the opportunity to walk through their medical area to see just... More

While holidaying in NZ we took the kids along to the zoo. We had been there 4 years ago and the kids were eager to return again. We went on a Friday during June (winter) and was pleasantly surprised that the zoo was not busy at all so we had lots of time to wander around in comfort and there's... More

The activities at the zoo are also very good. We love hand-feeding the giraffes and watching the staff talking about the elephants. When... More

One of Auckland's gems. An ideal family day out - animals lovingly cared for in modern and human environments. Conservation themes are strongly represented and onsite food and beverage all good. Parking can be a challenge - if you have little ones, highly recommend bringing a stroller - you'll cover a lot of ground.

I haven't been here for years and in so glad I went back. It was amazing. The weather wasn't the greatest but I loved every moment. The maps are super easy to read and follow. Managed to see every animal there (well, the most important ones) which was exciting. Had some food there too about 20mins in, which was tasty... More
