We really enjoyed our time here. And moreso junior. Lots to see and do, the weather was excellent cold but the sun shone and the Masoala Rainforest was superb. We spent 3 hours here but could have stayed longer but we had other appointment. The tram ride to the zoo from Enge was fun and all in all very accessible with lots of animals to visit.

There are a lots of animals, but not a lots of place, especially for the elephants, but they build a new place. But it's a beautiful place for the kids and to take photos...

You could easily spend a day there! Walking in the "Masoala Rainforest" section is superb! Easily reached by tram from city centre. A real experience one shoudn't miss!

Many of the animal enclosures are big & new. But the main reason my kids love this Zoo is because they have put in a few really nice playgrounds in it: seilbahns (ziplines), huge spider net to climb in, etc.
