  • The Auckland Zoo was excellent. It was well laid-out, and the keeper talks really added a lot to the experience. The animals looked healthy and happy and listening to the keepers talk about things that they do to check the health of the animals and the breeding programs was very informative. The zoo campus feels like a beautiful park, and is a real oasis so close to the city. We also ate at Darwin's and were very impressed with the quality of food and the reasonable prices. The hot chocolate and coffee were both some of the best I've had in NZ. The burger was only $12 including a side of chips. I would definitely recommend the zoo to anyone visiting Auckland. I would say that the quality was comparable to the San Diego Zoo, just on a smaller scale.

  • The zoo was great, there is a wide variety v of animals. You need a whole day to really experience the whole place, sometimes waiting is necessary to get a good view of the animals. Their enclosures are clean and not too cramped. There are also a variety of food places around the zoo which make for welcome stops. The day we went was very hot, even for the animals, maybe a more overcast day would be better. Sunscreen recommended, the zoo has a little, but not much, we went early and it was already running out, and a tube in the shop costs $11, so better to take your own. The bug display is well done, informative.

  • I've been to the Auckland Zoo twice. It's a nice way to spend an afternoon. If it's not too hot out the animals are usually visible. There are kiwi birds in one of the inside exhibits which we were able to see on our first visit. One of the other reviews mentioned it was too dark but in my experience it was just dark enough for this nocturnal bird to make an appearance. Overall the restrooms are maintained, the eating areas are a decent size and kept clean, there are a reasonable number of attractions and the zoo staff is friendly. It's a nice way to enjoy a sunny afternoon.

  • Love this zoo, it is clean and the animals all look like they have nice large enclosures. Would like more shaded areas to be able to sit with the family. And it is quite a trek to get around the zoo with little kids and especially on a hot day so we often do one side like Africa and then another day go back and do the other side. The annual passes are worth it.
