  • really beautiful zoo, we visited a way out of the ordinary. This program wild Saturday. you visit the zoo with a guide who will explain the functioning and purpose of establishing. more you go behind the scenes at the zoo to feed some animals. To eat avoid lunch hour at 1.30 pm because it's time where all the world is going to eat.

  • Beautiful zoo, with a cable car, where we can see the zoo from the heights and so enjoy the ride more, close to the métro, which facilitates.

  • Great to visit with the family. It is worth taking advantage of the shows throughout the day, as, for example, show birds and dolphins.

  • Good value for money, lots too see and a cool and enjoyable hanging platform that takes you above and around the zoo. The dolphin show was amazing and is also included in the entry price along with the hanging platform. The enclosures for the animals is reasonable whilst still allowing you to be in close proximity to see all the animals. Definitely worth going too.
  • Very nice place! Really worth the price. We can easily spend the whole day in here. The dolphins show and the free flying birds exhibition are specially nice, don't miss them.
  • A very old feel Zoo (in a good way) with beautiful early 29th century features. The small cable car is fantastic as it takes you through the trees and over the animal enclosures. Don't miss the dolphin and bird shows
  • Even though the concept may be strange, because you are delighted to see trapped animals, the conditions are good and the space is well designed to explore all the facility.
  • A very nice too, great facilities. A bit pricey.
