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.

  • for jobs in Guyana, I decide on a Saturday to visit the zoo. I do it in every country I visit because it is the easiest and fastest way to get to know the local wildlife. This of Macouria is cute, cozy and inexpensive. the cages of big cats are quite large and allow some freedom to them. Unfortunately when I visit everyone in siesta in the shade! Very nice location on suspension bridges in the middle of the jungle; I saw 2 monkeys in freedom! Equally nice tropical House and exciting vision of ibises. Visit to do if you have the misfortune of having to be in French Guiana!!!

  • Very beautiful zoo walk in the heart of nature. Amazing animals and a beautiful passage on the canopy. Shelters in case of rain. Fair price and for the Guyanese ticket valid all year.

  • Very beautiful zoo. Is the rain but very very good. Course in the wood at the top. Beautiful flora and fauna. No constraint with the children, even in a stroller. Good afternoon

  • 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
  • Open year-round, neat, attractive price in the year (for children who don't remember that their first quarter of an hour)

  • 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...
