“Great Little Zoo for all the family”

Parque Zoologico de Lagos
Ranked #9 of 82 things to do in Lagos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 4, 2013

When I heard we were going to a little zoo in Portugal I feared a visit to a small provincial zoo where there were few animals in below par conditions. But upon entering I was pleasantly surprised to see spacious enclosures and fantastic displays that my 2 year old loved.
What was especially great was how relaxed the animals looked and that peacocks, ducks and even a turkey were seen just wondering about without trying to escape.
The monkey island surrounded by aquatic birds was an especially good centrepiece.

Well it was a cold and cloudy Monday in February and what a relief to find the zoo open in the first place. It is a good ten minute drive out of Lagos so you may think you missed a signpost. Delighted to find the animals have a fabulous free environment to live in and all lively and looking very healthy. Great variety and we spent several hours here. Excellent for pushchairs or wheelchairs too. I would love to go again and suitable for all age groups

We've been to this zoo a few times and the variety of animals is staggering for such a small / regional zoo.

Pygmy hippos, rhino toucans, chimpanzees, gibbons, owls, bats, bob cats, oselots, lynx etc etc

The petting zoo is small but great, and the roaming peacocks always keep you on your toes!

Really enjoyable half day!!

Superb Zoo and the animals really looked well cared for. We watched the chimps being fed and it was as though they sat up to a table with best manners!.

Yes it is pricey but you know what it was worth it.

Definitely go back again.
