It was an excellent trip to Suriname last Dec. 2019. This little attraction caught my attention while bumming around the city of Paramaribo. The small zoo seems to be well kept and the few animals seemed to be well fed and taken cared of. I would recommend to give it a shot when visiting this jewel nation in the northern part of South America.

The local zoo looks fine now but the thing is that used to be better in the sense that they had more animals with in the enclosure. And now there are less animals to a point it more looks like a petting zoo, the only improvement is that the zoo used to be dirty and now it looks better as in clean and a bit more organized and well kept.

Has some animals you rarely see in European zoos. Is a small place, unfortunately does it look like if the funding is needed to take care of cages.

I was here with my 13 old son. It's a pity to see how run down some of the enclosures are (improvements seem to be in progress though, although slowly) but there are many awesome and interesting animals on display like the harpy eagle and several jaguars. The website is completely unhelpful - check on Facebook for anything going on at the zoo. Also, bring your own food because you cannot buy any there.

We were the only tourists when we visited the other day. There is a good variety of native animals on display, most with some room to move around in. The monkeys have the largest enclosure and were having fun swinging on the ropes. The jaguar enclosure should definitely be much larger to enable these majestic animals more room to run around. The animals all looked healthy and most were happy. There did not seem to be any animal feeding sessions or keep talks - something which I am used to in Western zoos. There should also be more information about the animals on their cages. The zoo could increase its income by selling postcards, soft toys, posters and other souvenirs. Good value for the entrance fee.
