Paramaribo Zoo, Paramaribo

(2.8/5 based on 140+ 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.

  • Its a great place, if ur in paramaribo and you want to spent a day with the kids outside. its has lots of different animals and a play ground.  more »
  • We always go to the Zoo if we in Suriname. We see it every time become more beautiful. You support them too if you buy an entrance ticket. If you have a bit of luck you'll see wild monkeys in the cages. Sometimes even more than in it. There are the last time new animals stay with. Really worth watching.

  • What a sad affair. In such a beautiful country like this where more than enough animals in the wild are to be admired. There is a Zoo like this unnecessary. The animals are kept in small spaces. Each visit stimulates this animal suffering. Not go. Enter the jungle in if you want to see something!

  • Heel mooi geworden
  • Mooier geworden in vergelijking met vroeger
  • You can get really close to animals, but need some serious investments.
