I went to the zoo early in the morning and found most of the animals were out. It’s pretty small so easily navigated. They did not provide maps but you can snap a picture of the map on your phone. Great for children and a...More

It’s lovely to walk around but too many animal enclosures are empty or “don’t look too hard as nobody’s home”. Seriously disappointing for the price .... but when you think there’s nothing left to feel bad about, why not visit the cafe where 2 bottle...More

We got here on a Sunday at 8:45 and the lot was pretty filled already. My sister mentioned that it's because they closed off half the lot due to construction. So if you want a parking spot, make sure you come early. Regular adult admission...More

We love visiting Zoos on our holidays. We were prepared not to see too many animals due to the weather and heat, but were surprised on the amount of animals around. Seeing so many American animals was amazing. The layout was great and we didn't...More

It wasn't san diego but we liked it. We went in October and a couple of the exotic animals weren't there like the lion and cheetah. It wasn't an over priced excursion and I thought it was worth it.

The Honolulu Zoo is not the Seattle Zoo or San Diego Zoo, but it’s charming, not crowded, usually has a cooling breeze, snacks, playgrounds, and is easy to get through in a morning. We are members and go at least once a month. My preschool...More

I believe the parking area is more street parking and maybe a lot close by. Probably you can. But there are many homeless people in the area. So do be careful of where you leave your vehicle and no belongings in it.

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
