Go in with low expectations and you may just have a good time. There are definitely tons of exhibits! I personally enjoyed the flamingos, and most especially the giraffes. The place isn't really maintained that well, but overall it's still not the worst thing in the world. It's a decent time on a weekend when you have nothing better to... More

My visit to the local zoo was amazing..After paying a small entrance fee. We immediately started observing the animals. The kids were quite excited to see the Giraffes and Lions. There is a lot to see and learn. On our last visit, one of the lions celebrated his birthday, on our return this year we heard of his passing. The... More

A well kept zoo. The animals are very well taken care of. Nice variety of animals. Very nice plants, trees and flowers. Nice snack bar where you can sit relax and eat/drink something.

Everytime we go it gets better and better :) My son is almost two and there are lots of things to get his attention. This is his third visit and he was very excited about seeing turtles, the big cats, birds, primates.... He even fed the giraffes. Much thought is being put into enclosures. This time we went during their... More

I went to this zoo early morning on a Monday which happened to be a holiday in Trinidad. It was kind of a rainy day but that didnt damper my spirits. I do enjoy going to zoos and I had never been to this one but I am glad I did. There is a huge crocodile very close to the... More

We've visited the zoo last week. They were preparing a massive theme; Halloween. For 30$TT p.p. you're in and easily entertain yourself for a couple of hours. Although a substantial amount of animal still house in small cages, the zoo seems busy on remodelling and relocating the animals. The variety of animals is great, but we were unfortunate to see...

Coming from North America, I wa shocked by how cultured this zoo was. Intending to spend 20 minutes, my trip at the zoo turned into two hours of fun

It is so depressing seeing these great creatures trapped in such confined spaces with terrible conditions. The cages are not even clean. The animals themselves are very irritable as can be seen from their body language. Overall a very depressing experience.
