  • We drove our own car from Istanbul to 35-40 min in The Darıca district of Kocaeli (40 km) across the entrance and there is parking in the back streets, their own car parks are 10 TL during the day but finding a place can be a problem I can find a parking lot in the back alley I left all day 15 TL zoo as enough space as animal diversity as well as enough size wc rest, dining areas and entertainment areas available for small children can queue for tickets in front of special occasions ticket without going ticket taking over (also advantageous in price) you can enter the queue without waiting for the current ticket prices on the internet all available took 2.5 hours to browse

  • The garden, where you can easily see all kinds of animals, is a great experience for children. Of course, we're adults. Bears, leopards, lions, tigers, lynxes, rhinoceros, crocodiles, giraffes, zebras and many animals are found in areas where living conditions are suitable. Chimpanzees attract visitors by making various antics. There are separate sections with aquariums and reptiles. In the place where different plant and tree varieties are present, the whole garden may not be enough to visit in detail. It's good to leave early, but it's exhausting. In terms of location, the garden in the city is designed with maximum efficiency, so it seems to be all in one and in a complicated state when traveling. On the contrary, I think it would be better if it were in a place with nature and spread out in a wider, flat area. You know, given the possibilities in our country, you shouldn't be contempted. The large and varied garden is worth a visit when it is evaluated for all itself.

  • You know, in Istanbul, we are suffering from a shortage of places in terms of entertaining children. It's one of the places that catches up with us at this point. In terms of both animal conditions and animal diversity, significant improvements have been made compared to previous years. I strongly recommend that you visit.
