(2.9/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
The only zoo in Suriname, Paramaribo Zoo has survived for 40 years to finally see an increase in visitors over the past decade or so. You'll have a chance to observe a variety of animals in captivity, including several monkeys, caimans, jaguars, red ibis, king vultures, boa constrictors, and anacondas. Pack your own supplies of snacks and drinks, as no kiosks or shops operate on site. Consider renting a bicycle for your trip to the zoo, which isn't far from downtown Paramaribo.

  • We loved this zoo so much. It isn't very big and doesn't have that many animals (though there are some very exciting ones!), but it is so well made and well kept, that it is a pleasure to walk around....  more »

  • Small zoo, accessible by taxi, plan to book the taxi back or to recall one, because a little away from the city center. Nice Park, well-kept, quiet. Some sections closed. Beautiful birds, monkeys and small felines. Gives a good idea of the fauna of Suriname and the jungle.

  • this place is awesome and there are so many different kinds of animals
  • Heel mooi geworden
  • Mooier geworden in vergelijking met vroeger
  • You can get really close to animals, but need some serious investments.
