Fairly priced and great location to add in amongst a day at Waikiki! I’d recommend going earlier in the day or maybe an overcast day because we went in the afternoon when the sun was direct and hot so most of the animals were off...More

Located within the Waikiki area at the end of the street, not far from most hotels. Situated within a large park setting which makes for an easy walk and also plenty of playgrounds for the kids which spreads it out a lot. With a slow...More

While the zoo is small, we did the twilight tour. Conner, Parker and Takio were vibrant and passionate about what the do. We were able to learn information about animals we had not heard of and interesting stories about the animals like Amybob the aardvark...More

Zoo is a nice nature walk, lots of exhibits had no animals. We did see the main ones, lion, zebra, elephant and giraffes. So it won’t take you long to walk through. The flamingos were white with a touch of pink. Good for bird enthusiasts....More

The zoo has many varieties of birds, and most were visible on our tour. There are also many large animals that were not very active at the time (early afternoon) that we visited. We made it a point to be at the elephant exhibit during...More

Wandered the whole zoo and saw mostly exhibits without animals and precious little attempt to educate the public about conservation of wildlife and the environment. This zoo has lost its accreditation (Google it) meaning that it does not meet the standards of a professional zoological...More

Somewhat smaller than other well known zoos, but quite expansion in its own right and well laid out. In February the temperature was about 72 to 75 so wasn't too hot or cool. Large banyan tree is focus point near children's play area, but can...More

You want to expect to stay around for over an hour at this place. The ground is extensive, and you don't just watch, but make observations at each place. The zoo is just around the end of the Waikiki Beach walk towards Diamond Head. Backed...More

You can pay online if you like for peace of mind. The parking is really the only concern as it is limited parking. If you are looking to get a discount of sorts for military personnel or what have you will have to show ID... More

I did not see any so my suggestion would be no, only service dogs. If you want to go give them a call when you are there they will be only too pleased to answer the question better than I can for you.
