  • Upon entering the Zoo back to be child, a variety of animals, clean place like the environments of the animals. Negative point that desadaptada people (adults, parents) start to throw stones at animals so that they come out of their caves or wake up, if they see that type of person attention them aloud so that they feel shame. They should remove from the Park. Do not give them food to the animals, they have their own balanced food.

  • This Zoo is must-see in Lima, it has improved a lot since the last visit which had made. The animals are well cared and the shows offering are very interesting; mostly the show with birds of prey. The Zoo is quite large so it is good to start the visit from early and preferably a day there is no many people as it could be from Monday to Friday.

  • The exhibist were nicer than the last time I went there a couple years ago. They have a train ride, horse carriage ride and a small amusement park. You have to pay an extra fee to be able to use all of them. They also have several kioskos, restaurants and a small botanical garden. They also have s small lake with rides and a "huaca" (pre inca construction). The only down coment is that they have less animals and no elephants, but overall it's a nice place to visit with the family.
  • Looking better. Unfortunately, people do not use the garbage bins to dispose of the plastics, bottles etc. People do not respect the signage in which it says do not disturb the animals. There's a need for guards to patrol the different enclosures to make sure people respect and obey. Some animals should be living in pairs or groups. It was quite sad to see a lion without a companion or some primates alone.
  • Very Informative and Entertaining
  • If you're looking for a space to get away, specially in Lima where it can be hard to find great parks, I recommend this one it doubles as a zoo, cheap prices and its an all day event with some friends. Check it out.
  • Not bad. Pretty big zoo, but some of the animals look quite unhappy.. Unfortunately our visit was ruined because someone stole the wallet right out of my purse.
