Owner description: It's hard to find a zoo that creates a completely natural habitat for its animals, and the São Paulo Zoo is no exception. Still, staff try to provide a decent home for the more than 3,000 animals in their care, including local luminaries such as the Brazilian howler monkey and the red-breasted toucan. Tue-Sun 9am-5pm

Unstimulated animals in dirty, confined spaces, seals with apparent eye infections, poor layout for animal viewing...best to avoid this animal cage.

I love this zoo, the most amazing area are the retails and the birds. There are many falcons, eagles and araras(parrots) from all south america. Wonderful species, colorful and incredible.

If you have the extra time and love animals and zoos this pace should be on your list. They are doing a phenomenal job and I think this is most likely one of the best zoos in South America, if not THE best. It is very nice to see how much detail the designers of the exhibit pay to small things and it is great to see all the environmental education efforts throughout. I am sure I will visit this place again when I am back in the city next year!

The place is really phenomenal! The animals are distributed in a intuitive manner for better visiting all spots. The monkeys islands are incredible and the place is very well preserved. The smell is the only thing not great but completely understandable.
