Hamilton Zoo is a bargain at the $19 entry price (for adults), and even more of a bargain at only $15 extra for a face-to-face encounter with their gorgeous Sumatran tiger, Sali. What a great experience!

The animals are in large clean enclosures and look happy and well looked after. Staff are always around working hard and keeping a good watch over their creatures. They seem to have lots to entertain them and it's a pleaseure to see. I have been many times and will go again sometime soon. If your in the area it's a must do.

Very good zoo, particularly for small children. You get very close to the animals and the park is nicely designed. On the day we visited we must have been the only visitors and got a very personal one on one experience with a lot of the animals. The staff at the zoo was fantastic too.

This is a great small zoo. It is well laid out and with a great selection of animals. It is worth the trip from Auckland.
