  • The Zoo is huge, be prepared to walk a lot. If you go with small child, don't forget the cart. Currently there are many spaces in reform, both the enclosures of animals as areas for snack or lunch. Bathrooms, family room, all ok! Worth the visit!!

  • Realized through visit school field trip with my son and wife, very nice to take pictures and get to know common animals in cartoons. Suggestion to rest before going on tour because walk enough and will consume energy.

  • Big and beautifull. Its kind clean, they got a dinossaur section (additional fee). The food court is not Big, it may get crowded. You find ice cream and bevereages vending machines around the zoo. Worth visiting specially with family
  • Going to the zoo is itself a 5 star experience. However, today my wife and I didnt even get in! This was the first time we had been in many years. We had always used public transport to get there and I would advise this 100%! We were sent to a car park off site, the price to park being R $40, this is R $10 more expensive than an adult ticket and most car parks in Sao Paulo itself. After parking, and then standing in a queue in a dark underground carpark waiting to pay at 1 poor kiosk in which the queue barely moved in 20 minutes and in which we saw quite a few empty shuttle buses to depart we gave up. Again the zoo itself is wonderful if you can get in, however this experience has left a rather bitter taste in my mouth, the extortionate car parking fee being very high up there. Considering the zoo is outside the centre of the city and even going to some attractions right in the centre car parks general cost R $15 or Ibirapuera Park that cost a couple of real an hour. The bad organisation just left hundreds of people waiting and lots of empty shuttle buses.
  • Excelente lugar
  • Beautiful park with an emphasis on trying to keep it as natural as possible. Easy access with a bus ride from Metro Jabaquara. Clean toilets and plenty of places to drink.
  • Amazing place! Bring ur family, kids, friend's!!! It's a really good place
