This zoo is located in a calm location in the city. There are some animals. This can be a great activity to picnic or relax.

Great and simple zoo. A variety of animals mostly closer to you than other zoos. Many places where you can sit and relax. A playground for children. Looking at the monkeys is just like a movie.

The zoo was interesting. I enjoyed the animals but the facility seemed a bid run down. There was a good variety of animals. Did not see any guided tours or tour guides.

Our Visit Was Wonderful. The Zoo Is Built Within It's Natural Surroundings. It Was Very Clean And Tidy. Staff Were Very Friendly. The Guy Selling The Natural Juice Snow Balls (Snow Cones) Was Very Friendly And Help Made The Visit Wonderful.

animals are well maintained, its clean. Not very big but nice to see local animals if not spotted in the wild. Enclosures are average, some better then others.

Suriname has one zoo and it is a bit small but fun and cozy. There are a lot of native animals which are nice to see up close. The Gonini is the biggest hawk of Suriname and recently added to the soo. There is a children's playground which they really enjoy.
