    zoo na podzim
    Zoo je to moc hezká, spousta zeleně, usazená ve velkém parku, což je na jedné straně výhoda, ale na druhé straně je zase větší vzdálenost mezi jednotlivými příbytky zvířat. Byli jsme tam v listopadu s 3 a půl letou vnučkou. Bylo poměrně zima, takže i některá zvířata byla schovaná. Lepší je chodit do zoo, když je teplo na jaře nebo v létě. Rejnoci jsou však úžasní.

    ZOO Lešná Zlín - krásný zážitek z fauny i flory
    Tuto ZOO jsme navštívili již 2 krát. Je krásná, nabízí velmi pestrou faunu i floru. Je zajímavě tématicky řešená, zámek je taky krásný. Jediné, co ZOO musím vytknout je chaotický vláček, který jezdí přes ZOO. Musela jsem pátrat a ptát se 5ti různých zaměstnanců, abych věděla, kde mám nastoupit, protože ten vláček moc nezastavuje. ZOO je opravdu hodně velká ,neuťapou jí malé děti, ani starší lidé, kteří mají problém se zády či nohama, proto bych ocenila, kdyby vláček jezdil po celé trase ZOO a vy si tak mohli prohlédnout většinu zvířat. To ale nebylo možné. Nasedli jsme na vláček tak v 1/2 ZOO a ten nás odvezl zkratkami zpět, takže jsme viděli převážně jen zeleň. ZOO je oblíbená, takže je tam veliké množství lidí. Vstupné poměrně vysoké a nedostanete k němu i mapku - což bych také ocenila, aby se člověk lépe zorientoval a šel třeba jen na zvířata, která ho skutečně zajímají.V areálu je dostatek toalet, venkovních restaurací a laviček. V době naší návštěvy ale hodně pršelo, tak si nebylo kde sednout a odpočinout. Na pokladně seděla protivná ženská, které se člověk bál zeptat na cokoliv, zbytek zaměstnanců ochotný. ZOO určitě doporučuji, pokud jdete s dětmi, je to návštěva na celý den, pro batolata doporučuji vzít kočárek, kvůli větší rozloze ZOO.

    Každoroční návštěva
    Opět jsme navštívili zoo. S rodinou zde míříme každý rok, jelikož je pro nás spolu s Pražskou Zoo nejhezčí v republice. Tentokrát jsme zoo navštívili v lednu a byli jsme překvapení kolik zvířat se dá i v zimním období pozorovat. Navíc si člověk více vychutnat teplo pavilonů a nemusí se nikde tlačit, díky malému počtu návštěvníků.

This was our second visit to the Lesna Zoo, and we like it a lot. The woodland setting feels very natural and relaxing, although clearly great care has gone into the landscaping and deployment of statues and artworks. The animals are grouped together by their country of origin, so there's an African zone, an Australian zone and so on, all with appropriate planting, hard landscaping and works of art. At times we felt the need for better signage so we didn't miss a bit, but that's a minor quibble.

In general, the animals seem to have plenty of space and to be well looked after. Not sure where the tiger was when we visited - on his holidays we hoped rather than on the loose in the zoo.

Dear Tripadvisor: You've just asked me whether this place or activity involves animals. It's a zoo - have a guess.

The Czech Republic has some of Europe's best zoos, and this si amongst the best of those. A superb collection of animals is displayed with real panache: the South American pavilion is an absolute highlight, as is the extensive bird collection that is peppered through the zoo.

An hours drive from Olomouc you can find the greater area's nicest Zoo (in my opinion).
Cheap, not touristic well kept and very animal friendly Zoo park. Stretched over a large hill side you better prepare for a serious walk. Unfortunately we had not the best weather and therefor we did mis some warm accommodation halfway.

I really liked the idea, that whole ZOO is divided into parts by continents. In addition to animals you also get some botanical (e.g. Japan garden) and ethnical experience (e.g. pottery made by tribes in Etiopia. Personally I enjoyed Prague zoo more, but there are some nice pavilions like Yucatan or Stingray feeding.

This ZOO has become a jewel of our Zlin`s region. The concept of the exhibition is great as the YOO is divided and organized according the continents and does not show only animals but also flora and typical traditional architecture. You can spend a very nice day with your family during which your children can enjoy an adventure park, riding ponies or traveling by a train around the ZOO.

Lying on the slopes of Beskydy mountains this small place represents the pinnacle of zoo making skills. Be sure to reserve 3 or more hours because this places offers so much packed on so small place that it is hard to believe. Ideally choose a sunny day and you get yourself a perfect family trip with fresh mountain air, tons of animals to look upon and tasty food of local restaurants and pubs. Best feature of the zoo is its focus on recreating the " native" environment for all the possible animals. Meaning You get the feeling of lush amazonian jungle in the south americas section and just few hundreds meter away you can be mesmerise by vast africas savanas. Think You have seen a zoo? Check this one first.

I don't like the ZOOs where animals are in small cages, walking there and back looking depressed. Zoo in Lesna is different. I kind of felt like there is nothing like this at all.. Lions are nicely visible, no glass, no cage - just an area separated from you by water and by low wall made of stones. All looks very natural and feels relaxed.
The Zoo itself is quite big as well so you won't be bored. Plenty of animals to see and places to sit and chill.

The best ZOO in The Czech Republic. I like it so much! Animals are happy, because they live there. But you can not go there with dog, never mind. It is great ZOO...
