Zoo de Guyane, Macouria

4.4
#1 of 8 in Outdoors in French Guiana
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. Take the guesswork out of planning a Macouria vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Disappointed to see these animals in spaces too cramped. I think I will not return in a zoo because it became a heart wrenching for me over time. However, those who are asking fewer questions than I will spend a good time I think. Avoid tap (mud, puddles, and ants)

  • It takes patience to observe animals, birds, but that's why. Nice scenery, walk on bridges... a good time to spend... descriptive panels very well made...
