The Auckland Zoo, in our opinion, beats any other we have visited around the globe.
The enclosures are excellent and allow the animals as much freedom as possible. It is a great family day out.

It's a great Zoo. Very nice habitats for the animals. They've made some good improvement over the years. I don't feel right unless I go once a year minimum and about four times maximum. What in really like about it is it is not too big or too small. Best to pick a day where it is not too hot and sunny as the animals tend to hide out. An overcast or even drizzly day can be perfect.

Also used to attend the evening concerts which were fabulous. Shame they have stopped.

The landscaping is awesome! We loved the new bird area too. It is a beautiful zoo and something to be proud of. After seeing rather a few in the world this one comes up on top. Go NZ!
