Owner description: LISBON ZOO – GO AROUND THE WORLD IN JUST ONE DAY At Lisbon Zoo, we invite you to travel around the world without leaving Lisbon. Find the Sumatran Tigers in the dense vegetation of the Rainforest, observe lions, giraffes and elephants behaviour at the dry African Savannah and dazzle with the majestic flight of the colourful birds of South America. Our mission is to develop and promote a zoological and botanical park, as a centre of conservation, reproduction and reintroduction of endangered species, through scientific investigation and environmental enrichment programs. Along with education is a strong entertainment component that will ensure a great family time, always with the conviction that when visiting Lisbon Zoo you’re contributing to this great project of conservations of endangered species and their habitats.

Take enough tiem to see it all. I would suggest to spend all day, make sure you watch dolphins show, take the small train and see all animals. It will be a long but enjoyable day.
Animals have very nice facilities and tehre are lots of births in this zoo. A great place to take children from all ages.

Take time out and visit Lisbon Zoo, is a must see for young and not so young im in my 60's and have been to many zoo's in my life time, but to see the tigers, a other wide collection of primates was great. The cable car ride above the cages is a must for a view of the whole park which is included in the price. You can make your visit an all-day event as there is plenty of cafe's for food/drinks and little buggies (free use) for under 5 which you can use push them around in, the walking is easy with plenty of seats. The enclosures are close together so no great trecks to see next one.
Do take a camera for a pic's of the tigers, and the many new babies born this year.

Highly recommended tourist destination.

I'm going here 4-5 times per year with my kid and every time is always as good as last one. Keep it up

This is one a surprisingly large zoo with a nice diversity of animals. This diversity included some rare findings that are generally not seen in other zoos as well as a wide range of birds, primates, and cats. Included in the price was a very nice aquatic show that featured sea lions and dolphins. Finally, when you think you have seen it all, ride the cable car and find something you missed and get a great view and photos of the city. I graded it a 4 because of the price. However, the visit is worth the cost if you have a lot of time to spend (hint - some of the tour bus tickets include zoo discounts).
