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.

  • This place keeps surprising me every time I take my kids there. Few years ago this place looked forgotten (cages were small and dirty, animals looked sick and hungry). But the Zoo make a good progress since then. Now its mainly looks like the other Zoos in developed countries.
  • YerevanZoo is beautiful place for spending your time with family and especially children. It is Surrounded with green areas. The cages for animals are pretty clean and suitable, especially after repair.
  • If you have visited Yerevan Zoo before it is totally changed. You can take a lot of awesome pictures here and spend your time with animals. For children here you can find small cafes and attractions.
  • After renovation this place very attractive.
  • Great place to spend a place with kids. After renovation it is especially good.
