Excellent visit even with the rain that came. We had our umbrellas with us so the rain did not stop us. We were present when the big cats were fed. They were very active and captured our interest . It is a beautiful space to walk around especially down by the lakes where a family of monkeys live on small... More

Grounds are nice, but many enclosures were closed off for apparent repair/refurbishing. The feedline area was great; the rest of the animal exhibits were just OK.

The Brasília Zoo is just nice. Nothing special about it. Except for the number and variety of felines. In a city where most of the sightseeings are museums and architecture, to spend time at the local ZOO is a good idea to entertain the kids. The Zoo is pretty big, which it might require a car to move around if... More

I have no interest in zoos, but I visited here primarily to do some birdwatching. The zoo is very big, and surprisingly it allows access to cars; mind you, the cars all travel very slowly. The zoo itself seem well maintained, but I was not impressed by the enclosures of the larger mammals - I never like to see mammals... More

Old style cages and facilites but animals looked well. Elephants did not have anything to play with. Easy and cheap (7 BRL*2) to get to with local bus from city centre. It was... More

Interesting variety of animals, good space, low price. Very nice snakes. Some african species, but quite a few local ones. Good place for children and a bike ride.

Interesting place with lots of endemic animals. There is even a white tiger. The butterfly sanctuary is fun to go to. Unfortunately, some animals seem unhappy, such as the lions and leopards (onça). Birds are many and colorful.

The Zoo has several ponds and artificial lakes, are birds, reptiles, mammals, most of the representative fauna of South America. It is a great pleasure tip to enjoy with family.

Its a nice enjoyable place to go and spend the better part of the Afternoon or Morning. You can pack a small lunch and have a picnic and relax under a shade tree and watch the Monkeys play a ilha de Macaco or Monkey Island. Its not the biggest Zoo I've ever been to but there are still plenty of... More

This zoo is nice. You'll find many kinds of wild animals. I've seen some birds that I've never saw before.
