Normally I don't like zoos but this had a really nice vibe to it. It has a great range of animals, all of whom are in nice sized enclosures which are mainly seperated from the public by deep trenches rather than bars, so you get to see loads of cool animals without looking through bars or glass! I got some amazing photos and the layout of the zoo is really engaging. Lots of good info about what you're seeing - in English as well as Spanish.

Good: Not much to do in Cali, so this will kill time. It is a decent zoo
Bad: It is said that this is the best zoo in Colombia. In this case, then the zoo is not impressive.
But go see it

Do not expect to see some really rear animals at Zoologico de Cali. Its an decent zoo with very cool setting surrounded with Cali river. Entrance is not very expensive and it will "kill" few hours of your Cali visit. Locals are very proud of this zoo as they claim that its the best Zoo in Colombia. The animal residents are mostly from South America, with very nice collection of exotic birds, monkeys, cats and one albino tiger. Its very nicely organized as you walk through the jungle type setting with plenty of exotic flowers and insects. Staff was very helpful and spoke english as my party and I did not speak spanish at all. Take your time walking through the zoo, as not much walking was done in Cali due to "security" reasons. The zoo is located in the safe part of the town and do not miss to stroll by the Cali river after/before the visit.
Lots of interesting and interactive parts of the zoo are mainly created for small children, so highly recommended for families.

Really enjoyed an afternoon here. Nice, clean habitats for the animals. The animals all looked healthy. Mosquitos were bad. Bring lots of bugspray.
