This zoo is an abomination! The poor leopard is kept chained and in an enclosure so tiny it can only pace back and forth with no floor padding on the bare concrete which is terrible for the soft feet of cats that are accustomed to walking on grasses in the wild. EVEN MY HOUSE CAT HAS MORE SPACE TO MOVE AROUND THAN THIS BEAUTIFUL LEOPARD! This is not a celebration of the beautiful creatures indigenous to Guyana. When I visited there was even an advertisement that they would be receiving an African elephant. That is going to be the loneliest, saddest elephant. This zoo should be restructured as a sanctuary. I would happily donate for such a project that actually celebrates South America's biodiversity and keeps animals in their natural habitats and protects them. We seek out such institutions to learn about these animals but not at the cost of their suffering.…

I came here for a school trip and there were only a few mammals, birds and reptiles. It's not a zoo that tourists would be interested in visiting due to that lack of diversity. The place could be sanitized a bit more but it's spacious and nice for kids to explore.

Unfortunately I was a little disappointed with the animals that were on display. They were less than I saw on previous years but still have some exciting animals. Not sure why this was and can only assume that there is some financial neglect in maintaining the population.

For just a couple of dollars you get to see animals you don’t often see in the US… The grounds are spacious and it’s a really fun day to walk around… In a couple hours you’ve seen it all and are ready for a cold drink...but not with the monkeys!

We visited the zoo one afternoon and it was a nice way to spend an hour or so. We saw the manatee before we even bought our tickets. Inside the zoo, we saw birds, monkeys, ocelots, cougars, a jaguar, caimen and a bunch of other animals. The zoo may not be like what you are used to as the animals are still kept in cages for the most part or have small enclosures, but they are well kept and you are able to get close to the animals (safely) which is cool. …
