  • Great Zoo, whose large animals (giraffes, elephants, Tigers, Lions, etc.) are on display. Great spaces for picnicking. Kids will love watching hundreds of different animals.

  • SP Zoo is very beautiful, structured, organized. The animals are well taken care of and there are many options for snacks. The kids love it!

  • The location is nice, but always too crowded. Can't handle to accommodate the public that receives. I'm only on day of week, or cogito go on a Saturday. Need more parking, more box office, more Diners and more accessibility for children and the elderly. You have to have a lot of patience, has several hassles that can ruin the tour.

  • I just went only to the safari park, but it was really a fun. You can enjoy one hour tour in your own car (or Zoologico's micro bus ). Don't forget to buy food bought on the street just before the entrance ( I thought that we could also buy it inside, but I couldn't find). Feeding seemed to give you much more fun there !
  • It's not very well-designed, as you have to go back through roads to get to other animals. However, it's a fair zoo. It's ok. Food is reasonably priced. The highlights are the hippos, giraffes and seals :)
  • Lugar maravilhoso, para ir com a família e amigos. Aprender mais sobre a natureza
  • Every time good sunday program. But many animals are outview.
  • Classic ZOO set-up but well maintained, clean and friendly staff.
