The zoo is a good way to enjoy Waikiki Beach as part of your whole Hawaiian experience. Laid out nicely with lots of artificial rocks to give it a natural setting feel. Well worth the admission price.

We recently visited this Zoo and were quite impressed with the amount of room most of the animals had. It’s not a crazy big Zoo and I’m glad the hours were limited from 9-4:30 I believe so the animals aren’t constantly surrounded by people. Lots...More

Pleasant family site to visit. We spent 2 hours on a hot Saturday afternoon. The best time maybe during the cooler evening hours as most of the inhabitants prefer the shade during the hot afternoon heat. Although the parking lot was full, the zoo was...More

Needed to waste some time so we checked out the zoo. Reasonably priced. Lots of animals to see and things to do.

Absolutely lived our time at the Honolulu Zoo tonight on the #twilighttour. Many animals were out for us to enjoy God's creation and learn to be good stewards of what He has given us. Decent pace with opportunities for questions on all kinds of things....More

we spent over 3 hours here and were charmed; some zoos make us uneasy but this is an excellent example. Lots of people seemed to rush by and take a snap, if you stand a stare often things happen. We had a great view of...More

We visited this zoo on Dec. 23, 2018. It is much larger than you expect and has many plants, birds and animals I have not encountered at other zoos. The grounds are lovely and if you have small children, there is a playground area in...More

I suppose it might depend on the time of year you go. We were there in Oct & on the weekend and it was perfectly fine. Nobody in line ahead of us. The summer time may be a little more busy.

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.
