We arrived late in the day and had to rush before the zoo closed, but what we saw was absolutely worth the time. Good layout and easy to navigate. Mostly flat to help with walking. Get an earlier start and make a day of it.

As other reviewers have said, be prepared to walk as this place is big. From one side to the other it is about 1.5 kilometres and has a lot of hills. Some of the hills can be quite steep so bear that in mind if...More

It's rather far away. No way to walk from the train station to the zoo as you would waist the whole morning on the way. The best thing to do is to take tram number 5, whose final stop is right in front of the zoo entrance... More
