Learn about animals of the Caucasus or take hippo therapy at Yerevan Zoo. Spanning 35 hectares (86 acres), the zoo, established in 1940, has close to 3,000 animals from over 200 species. Syrian brown bears, Armenian mouflon, Bezoar goats, black vultures, and some vipers represent some of the South Caucasus and Armenia. There are camels, deer, hippos, Siberian and Bengali tigers, lions, lynxes, baboons, different kinds of monkeys, and deer. The prime pet of the zoo is an elephant. Children's playground area, a café, and affordable tickets make this spot a nice family visit. For extra-special treatment, take a VIP golf cart service for your family or go horseback riding. Put Yerevan Zoo into our Yerevan vacation site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The Zoo made a sad impression, a small selection of animals. Was a fun hippo, camels and monkeys. Clearly expected more! Despite Sunday's day visitors was very little. Absolutely ugly souvenirs (

  • With the new Executive Director of the Park are lucky! After the reconstruction of the Zoo completely transformed. You can buy when you enter a special meal and feed the animals. The rather small and compact territory of a lot of things to look at. For a small fee you can rent a car and drive it together with a guide. Advise!

  • I haven't visited the Yerevan Zoo for about 10 years and was very surprised and happy to see that renovated. The Zoo differs a lot. It's much larger, spacious, green, neat & clean. Many animals now live in large outdoor enclosures and seem much happier. I hope monkeys will also relocate from their old and narrow cages soon. I also noticed good changes in people's attitude towards animals. I would like to mention Lida - a young friendly girl who takes care of horses and seems to really love them and enjoys her work. I wish the rest of the zookeepers of the Zoo were dedicated to their job and respected animals, too.
  • I've been in Yerevan Zoo 5 years ago. So much have been changed. There are very few cages left there. Most of the animals live in open range cages. The Zoo has mach bigger land and more happy animals.
  • Lovely zoo. Uphill walk so prepare to sweat. Good variety of animals and very clean.
  • Zoo reopened. Very affordable and great for small children. Hopefully they will continue to grow. Great walking, early morning recommended.
  • Its is better place to spend time with family watching all animals in zoo best zoo in Yerevan
