Zoo de Guyane, Macouria

4.3
#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.

  • A zoo where we discover animals of the Amazon rainforest. Some are hard to see... The part "addict branch" is very friendly and allows you to work with the monkeys in their natural environment. Too bad we don't cross a healers... for more explanations. Plan a visit from 2:30 to see everything quietly.

  • an unique opportunity to meet the local wildlife... lucky indeed to see Jaguar and Puma in the turns of your visits... Well maintained place, useful explanations next to each pen... nice shopping at the end... the place is worth a visit

  • Guyana zoo is really great. The diversity of species is very impressive. With 100% Guiana animals and in very good health, in their "almost" natural environment. A variety of species... The greenhouse at the birds can approach the ibis very closely. We ran into some small monkeys in the natural part of the Park. Too bad that we couldn't do the course in the trees because it was closed at the time of our visit. ++ Corners for family picnic / 2 hours to visit unforgettable!

  • 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...
