  • The zoo of BH was once more well taken care of. The visit offers a few attractions. the animals are hard to see. I may not have been lucky, but the zoo has been much better.

  • Have lots of animals and they are well taken care of. There is a Japanese garden which is very beautiful. The full day is Sunday, in others it's more peaceful. It's too hot to go for a walk.

  • I didn't like the last visit to the zoo of BH. Badly treated animals, cages careless, degraded environment. Do not recommend!

  • 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!
