  • Took my son to the zoo for his 2nd birthday. The cost for children under 12 years is TTD 15 and TTD 30 for adults. Although there is parking for the zoo you still have to pay TTD 5 to park. First the ...  more »
  • I guess like all zoos there is not the money to house everything in perfect enclosures - and besides it is in a very small area. But the animals looked in good condition and the tigers had a large enc...  more »

  • Growing up in Trinidad in the 90s, I loved going to the Emperor Valley Zoo and over 20 years later, my sentiment is the same. Despite significant changes in the animal displayed and the infrastructure, the mission remains largely conservation and preservation and I admire that it is one of the few zoos, from those I have visited across various continents, which has the large majority of its animals from the local region. Worth a visit. But definitely ask if all the part of the zoo are open before paying entry- my favourite element the Aquariums were completely closed the last time I visited without notification from the reception/cashier.
  • A really nice zoo in beautiful surroundings. Just opposite the Savanna park in Port of Spain, & beside the Botanical Gardens. There was a good variety of animals & birds to take pictures of. It's was a good few hours spent with family at a very good price. There are food & refreshments available for purchase, along with gifts. It was bigger than it seemed from the outside; they are also planning to expand.
  • First visit in over 25 years. It is better than it was back then, but they are clearly lacking the funding to turn it into what it has the potential to become. A wider range of beautiful and well maintained animals is available. If I had a wish it would be to have the cages become invisible and build moats and alternate containment devices. Space is also a constrain though.
  • The Emperor Valley zoo is a place in which one can relax, reflect on life and adore the beautiful creations that God has bestowed upon us. It's a place in which one can be educated about different species; whether familiar or unfamiliar. The romantic atmosphere is perfect to bring relationships with family and friends closer than ever before.
  • Overall a pleasant time spent although some visitors smelt worse than the animals. I suggest scheduling visits during the less busy periods of the day/ week.
