“Enclosures are way too small”

Zoologico Nacional de Chile
Reviewed 30 March 2013 via mobile

This zoo is pretty poor. The animals are in cages that are just way to small. The polar bear very nearly brought me to tears. I actually feel bad for paying money to support this. It was fairly cheap to get in and it was in a nice setting but the animals made me really sad! I can't recommend this.

If you compare it to, say San Diego, you miss. But for Santiago and South America, it's worth the trip. Just don't get too excited...

Average zoo, but this is the only chance of an average tourist to see the wildlife of Chile - to have some idea how huge the condors are and how lazy the pumas ;-) As an additional attraction, they have a white tiger...

The first time I was able to see a Condor, the largest flying bird, native to the Andes Mountains. The Llamas were also something one does not see in other zoos around the world. Situated on a hill with great views of the city of Santiago, it is well worth spending half a day.
