Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
Get up close to endangered wildlife in captivity at Zoo de Guyane, located within authentic Guyanese jungle. Recognized as the only zoo in Guyana, the institution shelters over 70 exotic (and mostly endangered) species, including pumas, jaguars, ocelots, anacondas, macaws, and iguanas. Trails through the jungle lead over suspended trees and among tall, shady canopies. The zoo enjoys a reputation for its highly responsible approach, though visitors who find the sight of animals in captivity upsetting should approach with caution. Arrange to visit Zoo de Guyane and other attractions in Macouria using our Macouria vacation generator.

  • This place is fabulous! Such a great experience. Definitely worth it.
  • Great little zoo, with a nice variety of local fauna, including tapirs, toucans, caymans, capybara, ocelot, and many many more. The capuchin monkeys were particularly entertaining. Plan to spend around 90mn.
  • it stinks so bad
  • A very good way to discover French Guyana wildlife and so to vent the frustration of not more "Critters" cross during the walks in the forest. On the way to the monkey bridges to work... with monkeys precisely. Allow two hours for the ride, a great way to see some wild species is to go there two hours before closing: the animals know that they will be fed... The entry is not given but lets go back to will for a year...

  • Very badly indicated from Kourou. Do not go to the opening because the animals are sleeping.
