“Best Zoo I have ever been to!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Very easy to reach from Karsiyaka, using bus 777. Very cheap Entrance (3 TL and 1 for students) and the best Quality for money you can imagine! You get a free map with a great visiting plan, the zoo is very cleap and well kept, animals look healthy and all animals have sufficient ground space.
If you're a fan of peacocks you'll be very pleased because they're literally everywhere xD
A great variety of animals. Facilities (WCs and restaurants) are well placed and there's always somewhere with shadow to sit.

They should really put a tipping box at the exist because you'll totally want to give them more money to continue the great job they're doing!!

It'd be great if they get a bike rental, the zoo is pretty big and bikes will be a great way to get by

Anyway, this is a MUST SEE destination in Izmir

“Great zoo - ask a receipt at the counters”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Great zoo, we went there two times, in the weekend quite busy, during weekdays it is almost you and the animals... The zoo is big, the animals have loads of space for themselves, good to see. Nice place to spend your day for three hours or so. Costs 3 TYL p.p. children up to 7 for free. Parking space for free.
Only negative point is the personell behind the counters, from the three times we bought food and drinks the personell tried to steal money two times. One time they did succeed. The second time the cashier said we had to pay 10 Lire and when we asked for the receipt she gave us the 1.75 Lire change as well. So always ask for the receipt. And it is not about the money...
The zoo is just Great!

“hard to get wonder!”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

to tell the truth it was such a hard journey was to get there. transport without private car can be so hard. but also you shouldnt forget there are public buses going to attraction. buses are not so frequent either. if you have kids or if you are a wildlife lover, ,t is a must do in izmir.
