Parque Zoologico Huachipa, Lima

(3.1/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
Parque Zoologico Huachipa takes a more hand-on and close-up approach to animal observation. Explore the zoo's petting workshops for sheep, camels, and vicunas, and enjoy close interaction with a variety of big cats--including the increasingly rare white tiger--separated by reinforced glass. Pay special attention to the extensive and informative aviary and section dedicated to the Amazon rainforest. Because of the zoo's location a fair distance from most touristy spots, consider taking a taxi here, unless you're familiar with the area. Work out when and for how long to visit Parque Zoologico Huachipa and other Lima attractions using our handy Lima tour planner.

  • To spend a day family worth scroll to Huachipa. You should go carefully with the area where you will find the Zoo, which is chaotic. Is it worth the show with wolves marine. Lately they have included an aquarium which is usually the most interesting attraction for children. Bring sunscreen. Family plan.

  • It is well for children to play, learn and know animals. Still needs more green areas and bathrooms

  • The place is not very big but is well distributed in space, nice to spend a family or couple, nearly an hour from the center of Lima and affordable prices, recommended.

  • A family friendly zoo with a various species of animals. There are some really cool animals which are seen only in PERU. The zoo is over crowded with people during holidays. I am not happy with animal enclosures, because they are quite small for the animals. The zoo needs more attention about cleanliness, animal care. The zoo needs some improvements in many areas. I enjoyed the conceptual exhibits in the zoo. overall It's a good place to spend your time with kids and family.
  • En descuido total, baños sucios, animales mal cuidados, mala señalización, lagunas llenas de algas y basura. En una palabra: decepcionante.
  • Great for a family trip
  • Muy divertido!
  • Its ok the animals need to be taken care of more
