  • A great place for the whole family, if you want to relax, forget the problems of real life, this is the place. A Woods/Zoo in the middle of a city, easily accessible and with free entry. Well worth meeting, many animal species such as lions, Jaguars, elephants, birds, reptiles etc. To be sure to pass the Japanese Garden, very beautiful. No private parking, but you can leave your car in the street even apparently secure with many people who charge to look at the car. Sunday is a little tricky to find a place to park. Have fun

  • Nice place overall. Not so good about parking your car though. There's no parking lot, so you have to park in the street, probably a little bit far from the entrance. Food is very simple. It's good to have some snacks and water, soda... I saw some complaints about maintenance, but there's not so much to improve. Looking for a stunning zoo? Get a African safari. Also, there's an entrance for a Japanese Garden (inside the zoo) with small lakes full of turtles and carps and a view-point to the city. A must-see!
  • A little bit run down looking, not well maintained. Free entrance.
  • Great zoo. The animals don't feel like they are caged. The Japanese garden is a must see. Perfect Panorama view of Ribeirão.
