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.

  • If you are in Guyana certainly won't have the opportunity to observe all the species in the wild. A visit to this zoo is required. In some cases animals have much more space than in other zoos I've seen. The thing I liked the most was the fact that I haven't seen species that naturally live in totally different temperatures than those that you have in Guyana. I believe that this zoo is one of the finest I have ever seen but still a zoo .... see animals in the wild is another thing.

  • This zoo is very nice to visit, the entrance is at 16.50 euros per person, the ticket is valid for a year. You can see a lot of animals, birds (toucans, parrots, etc.) of reptiles (caimans, snakes) of mammals, (Jaguars, great anteater, peccaries, lazy, monkey...) Can also be an intrusion in the Amazon rain forest, a suspension bridge allows to cross flooded areas. Must visit if you come in Guyana.
