  • Tour not to be missed! Who wish to attend, you must go with time to spend all day. The zoo is one of my favorite places in BH. Has a very large diversity of species. Has a very pleasant climate, it has a beautiful garden, butterfly garden and Aquarium. Not to be missed!

  • The zoo is great for a family walk. There is lots of beautiful green space. My daughter (4 months - in a stroller) and husband went on a Saturday and it was relaxing. The aquarium is the worst I have ever seen and it requires to pay an extra fee of 6 reais per adult (very little, but I wouldn't even pay 1 real). The aminals were great when they were out and able to see.
  • Lugar bom para passear.
  • Amo o Zoológico.
  • Bom local.
  • Muito legal!
