Great Zoo

The zoo in Cali is rated as one of South America's top ten zoos. If you are in Cali, and are in to zoos, this is a must see. If you can, go on a week-day. The weekend is mobbed.

Had a wonderful day at the Zoologico de Cali. We had our very own personal guide, Juan Pablo. He taught us very much today. I recommend anyone and everyone to visit the zoo. If ever in Cali again, will surely visit.

Very well thought out, this place is a great visit in Cali. Do it anytime, immaculate, well kept, the animals are carefully and professionally kept and the restaurant on the other side of the river is a nice complement to a place we are all so proud to have.

The zoo is definitely worth a visit, a lot of animals to see. Very busy with school children during the week, but still fine.

This is a great zoo to go with the family, they have many permanent species and a space for temporary exhibitions (when I visited they had the Australian one). The animals seemed happy and well cared.

This is a world-class zoo. I haven't been to a lot of other zoos in Latin America, so I don't know how this compares. But my guess is that few Latin American cities have a zoo as good as this one. Last year we had our son's birthday party at the zoo. They provide an excellent service by giving us... More

I am sceptical of zoological parks in areas of the world that are outside Western Europe and fear that the animals are not going to be well cared for. But, as an ex-student of Ecology and someone who works in conservation, I found the Cali zoo be modern and that the animals showed no signs of stress. This zoo is... More

My first visit to this zoo. Very low cost and extremely well cared for animals. Take your time to make sure to view the tigers early. Before they take their siesta

It's a nice place to spend an afternoon looking at the different animals. It's relatively small but has a lot of diversity. The zoo is well-maintained, clean, and the animals look like they're healthy though the bear might need some attention.
