A Little Below Average
sty 2020
More effort could be spent on the environment for the animals. Not much in the way of shade for some of the heat sensitive animals.

A lone elephant suffering and eating its own poo
lis 2019
Honestly, there must be a better way to educate kids about animals and the fair treatment of them. This is just not good enough, yes, it is clean and tidy, well signed and the staff are ok but...it is so tiny and cramped, it really does not address or provide good example of any social issues or animal care and protection.

The saddest sight is by far a bored out of his brain adult elephant scrapping the minuscule enclosure looking for food and his friends. Whilst I was there I saw him eating his own excrement, which I dont believe is normal. This is the same elephant that about ten years ago got so frustrated and bored he knocked down the 20 foot high concrete walls in an attempt to escape.... he is still there and depressed as ever by the looks of it.

All the cages are very small as it is all packed into a block in the heart of a residential and commercial area. If you want to show and teach your kids how to look after and care for animals it is NOT HERE you would be better watching the discovery channel.

Hi! Thank you for your visit and for taking the time to send us your opinion. We can tell you that we are already working on moving to another space, however, being a non-profit foundation it has taken us longer than expected since we do not have all the resources to make it happen immediately. As for the consumption of feces by the elephant, some animals do it, it is a condition known as coprophagy, common in species such as rabbits, capybaras and ostriches to increase the absorption of vitamins, for example vitamin B. In general, they consume it directly from the anus. Once again, thank you so much for comin to the Zoo and contacting us.

Nice but needs care
gru 2019 • Dla rodziny
The zoo is nice but needs better care. I went with my family and we enjoyed our time there. Nevertheless, cages should be bigger and better maintained because they seem a little dirty and animals don’t have much space to move around.

Small but cute

This is a very small zoo but it is clean and with plenty of helpful staff. Bathrooms are clean and there are some vendors with basic food items.

My teens enjoyed the visit. They enjoyed seeing the variety of animals. The chicken at the restaurant was good.

The kids lowered the rating because the animal cages were not clean and smelled. Despite this, they enjoyed the visit.

Cheap and nice for family & kids.
paź 2018 • Pary
We went there as a couple just to fill our day in Barranquilla. The Zoo is not very big so you can spend around one hour to two hours max in an affordable price to view the animals. There are people working there to give you further information or clarification about each animals. Nice variety of wild animals and the best for me was the tiger from Bengala. You can see jaguars, lions, a great sort of mamals, and birds.
The only thing less nice is that some animals are in a short space, lonely....

Sad :(
lip 2018 • Znajomi
One of the saddest things I ever seen. I guess it’s not even just this zoo but the animals seemed very sad and lifeless. There aren’t that many animal options

City Zoo In The Neighborhood
sty 2018 • Znajomi
Within a short walk I found myself at the city zoo. Good value with plenty of shade trees and an easy walk to see the exhibits. Many local animals that I have never seen before with many locals also enjoying the sights. Visit early morning to beat the heat. Refreshments available including local crafts
