“Amazing Day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The Zoo oppens at 10am daily. Ticket (Adults): 18€; they have discounts for Youth Card Users or Fnac users (12% discount), and other discounts (Lisboa Card, etc).
Metro Station: Blue Line - Jardim Zoologico.

In the entrance of the Park you can take pictures with some parrots.

You can spend there the entire day in Family. Inside the Zoo you can use the cable car (for free) and you can enjoy the nice view of the entire Zoo (~30 min ride).

All the Shows inside the Zoo are included in the ticket price.

The most amazing show is the Dolphin's Bay Show, during the Show you can buy fresh water (1€/bottle) and you can buy cuddly dolphins (between 2€ - 8€), the kids will love them! In the end of the show you can also take pictures with a real Sea Lion.

There are other shows: Sea Lions Feeding, Pelicans Feeding, Free Flying Birds and Reptile Presentation. I saw the Reptile and Flying Birds show and in the end of the show you can touch the animals and take some pictures with them. The shows are real nice and they explain you the animal life (in portuguese language, even if you don't understand Portuguese, the Shows are really nice).

They have about 5 restaurants where you can lunch. They have also a McDonalds. But if you want, they have a pic-nic area, but you have to bring some food from home. Maybe some sandwiches and drinks and enjoy the pic-nic area if you don't wanna go to the Restaurants area. Prices are very reasonable.

Hundreds of different animals! Worth the visit!

“One of the best zoos in the world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

The Lisbon Zoo is more than your typical zoo. When you enter, it has more the air of an amuzement park. The variety of animals, live shows and animal habitats are amazing. Plan to spend the day. There are snack bars / coffee shops, scattered throughout the park and several restaurants at the front entry area. Prices are reasonable and quality is good.

“A lot to do for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

In terms of the animals it was your standard zoo. What made this one different was the amusement rides for kids.

Overall definitely worth going to, without a doubt.

“As Zoos go this is top drawer!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We went here with the kids on a Saturday and it was busy but loads to do. It cost 54 euro ( 2 adults 1 child, my 2 year old was free). It seems expensive but there are two daily dolphin shows, 11am and 3 am and they are worth it alone. There is also a live bird show that is 1hr long and is very entertaining, it is all in portuguese so we could not understand the background on each bird but it was still a great show. The icing on the cake was cablecar ride that was free and took you over the whole zoo for a very relaxing 30minute ride. The cars are small so I went with my 2yr old and my wife went with my 6yr old and all four of us loved it! It was very hot at the zoo but loads of shaded areas and you could go out of the zoo to onsite cafes and get back into the Zoo highly recommended.
