I stayed at an apartment right next to the Zoo. The place is great, wonderful atmosphere and lots of different animals and attractions. Highly recommended!

A little cramped in places, typically for a city zoo of this vintage, but many excellent large enclosures allowing you to view animals in natural group behaviour. The 'terrible' reviews on TripAdvisor are some of the dumbest I've ever read, including people who didn't even enter the zoo, and others who complain about the price, which is below average.

One of the best zoo I have ever seen in Europe. The animals are well treated, the area of the zoo is very large and there are many types of animals. A little bit pricy to be Lisbon, but in the price there's the dolphin show: a must see!

The cable carts are a good way of seeing all of the park and fantastic views of Lisbon. Just be careful when your getting on and off... More

Beautiful grounds, plants and imaginative enclosures. Active and well cared for animals, many part of a conservation programme. Wide range of animals, bears, lions, tigers, koalas, reptiles, birds, elephants, rhinos, hippos, monkeys including a gorilla. Reminded me of all the animals one used to see in London zoo in the 1960's. Very good value, for the price included as many... More

We have family in Portugal so they wanted to go to the zoo. It actually was very nice and of course some completely different species that you could find in the states. Our only probably there are several signs to the building where the lizards/snakes are and we never found it. It was probably the building that was shut down... More
