“Lagos zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

Really good zoo. Let's you get really close to the animals in a way not permitted in UK zoos. Eg you could get inches from the pygmy hippo (if you wanted)

A couple of the parrot cages could be a bit bigger to allow them to fly more easily but the lemur and monkeys enclosures are first class.
Lot's of birds, so if you are into them you'll be be in heaven. Plenty of other animals for those who aren't too. Petting zoo with more usual rabbits donkeys cows etc too for any little ones to get safer actual hands on

“Nice small zoo, ideal for young children”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

Small and sweet but well-run zoo with friendly staff. Ideal for those with young children. Nice selection of animals, lots of birds and monkeys, and everything looking well cared for. No large animals pounding round small enclosures. Couple of kids playing areas with a few but good pieces of kit. As others have said, a very pleasant half-day out.

“Lagos zoo - wheelchair accessible”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

A little off the beaten track but worth a visit. It is wheelchair accessible all areas. Snack food was good and freshly prepped - not too costly for a captive audience either

“Lovely Zoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

Was a bit apprehensive about the zoo. We have had a bad experience in the past with zoos abroad. We were pleasantly surprised. No big animals but plenty of birds, monkeys, flamingos, reindeer and giant tortoises. There was also 2 pygmy hippos. We had a very enjoyable visit. The only downside was the price. 16.00 for adults and 12.00 for children. Would be a bit expensive if you had a couple of children.

“A good half a day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

This is a good half day out. If you like birds and apes then you will really enjoy your trip to Lagos Zoo. Just check your receipt as when we got back to our rental villa, we noticed that even though we paid for a family of 4, the receipt was only for a party of 3.
