From pink flamingos to African giraffes, the Honolulu Zoo is home to a little bit of everything from the animal kingdom. Its animal population includes more than 64 reptile, 38 mammal and 160 bird species. The 42-acre facility is organized into three tropical ecological zones: Tropical Rainforests, Pacific Islands and the African Savanna. Among its highlights is a new $12-million, 1.5-acre Asian tropical elephant exhibit that includes a 7,260-squre-foot holding area and two 55,000-gallon pools.

We visited the Honolulu Zoo two years ago and just loved it, and spent hours there, so we decided to do a return visit, this year. What a disappointment - most of the cages were empty or shut down. The drinks stall was also closed down and a bottle of water was $3.50 from the gift shop and you can... More

The Zoo was a very relaxing and interesting afternoon, there were a lot of different breeds of birds to view.They also have a great variety of animals to see. There's a park area where you can fly kites or just sit and relax.And if you have children ,a great place for them to run around. And if you're a bit... More

We liked the variety of monkey they had on display. It's a very small zoo. We walked all over in couple of hours

Having a five month old means doing a lot of pram pushing and if that means going to the zoo for a few hours, then so be it. The Honolulu zoo is quite small in size. You can see it all in under two hours. It was quite saddening to see some of the animals in small enclosures.

This zoo features mostly - and for now exclusively, with the reptile house closed for renovations - outdoor exhibits. Admission price is quite reasonable ($14 adult), with plentiful opportunities on the grounds to snack, sit, and rest in the shade. A visit of 3 hr provides a 'normal' (i.e., slow) adult with adequate time to examine all the exhibits thoroughly... More

Visited the zoo to pass time before we had to leave for the airport. Adult admission was $12 per person. Disappointed since much of the zoo was closed for renovations or the animal exhibit was closed. Best site was the giant tortoise. Kids would enjoy it, but as 2 adults, I would spend time seeing something else.

Great zoo with lots of shade and seating. Animals are really well cared for. The flamingos were so pretty and the monkeys were as entertaining as ever!

My wife and I attended the zoo on our first day in Hawaii. Cheap entry and plenty of animals from around the world too see. Well maintained zoo. Our favourite display was the elephants and the giraffes/zebra displays. This place is easy to walk around and you do so at ur own pace. Great for kids too. Not to forget... More

This is a nice little zoo to visit during afternoon hours because I noticed that the animals know about the zoo closing time and thus become more active during the closure time.. :P There are enough restrooms and interestingly, a small playground in the middle of the zoo for kids. Parents can take a breather meanwhile. The animal collection is... More
