  • Excellent!!! Several shows for knowledge of existing species at the Zoo. The "Savannah" is spectacular! Contact with wildlife! View of the douro River. No doubt you must visit!

  • Worth the visit, nice and great especially for children. The tunnel of the Lions is just amazing and note that the animals are well treated. The repeat without doubt.

  • Nice zoo. It was very quiet when we were there. The view at the Savannah bar is beautiful. The zookeepers/caretakers were very friendly and tried their best to answer our questions in English. Good for half a day, then you've seen everything.
  • The big advantage is free shuttle service from/to Porto. Zoo is very small, because of the high temperature animals were hidden in shadow places. Most time it we fill that we play hide-find me game. Big attractive for local children are presentations of flying raptors, but we don't know Portuguese, so the show was limited to watching.
  • In my opinion this zoo is only good if you've never seen an animal before. I hated this zoo because it looks terrible. They claim that their main attraction is the "glass tunnel" but it's so dirty that your photos will look like fog. Besides that, there were 2-3 animals per species and hidden because of the sun. The habitats aren't similar to real ones. For example, I saw deers with a camel habitat that means no grass at all. Not recommended for the price(14.50€). Anyway, staff was so good and they gave me a full refund
  • Had great time with my family. Clean friendly many animals to see all in very nice enclosures.
  • A very nice zoo near Porto, in a very calm area. All animals look relaxed and are well taken care of
