The zoologico de Cali is a pleasant visit for an afternoon. It looks well maintained but it is small. When we visited it was raining, so we got some shelter in the aquarium. But the rain was unpredictable these days. We enjoyed the visit!

Zoo is wonderful, you can really get up close and personal with the animals. Only downside for us was it was extremely busy and it was a challenge to get around. The exhibits were excellent, and the animals look well cared for. The monkeys even had cute newborns for us to watch!

Had a beautiful day to tour the zoo in Cali, Colombia. All of the animals and fish appeared to be well fed and content in their environment. Especially loved how you could walk through the butterfly garden and the duck pond areas. The butterflies would actually light on one's finger while you were walking through. The exhibits and habitats were... More

This is a wonderful zoo in a weather where local, African and even Australian species can be seen. Supported by local companies the place is a learning space for children and adults. There are small stores but it is good idea to bring some water and fruits. They sell some "packages" at entrance that can help to reduce the price.

The zoo in Cali is a beautiful place, with beautiful landscapes to photograph. When I was there, they were enlarging 2300 meters more where you can see the Jaguar. It has a great variety of animals, which in the sight of visitors are very friendly. With the exception of the peacock; because this is outdoors and if you get too... More

Excellent zoo. The Cali Zoo is within city limits. It´s not big. We went through the whole zoo in about 2 to 3 hours. It is very well organized. The aquarium is also well laid out. Lots of fish which are endemic in South America.
