Budapest is the best city to learn the art of resource management. This zoo that opened up in the year 1866 is still as well maintained and much to our delight has expanded beautifully over the years. It is the oldest zoo in the whole of Hungary and is also one of the oldest in the whole world. With about 1072 species, these Botanical Gardens are sure to make you squeal like a child. Out of the 1072 species, you also find the rare ones such as the Komodo Dragon and the Wombat here. In the initial years, most Hungarian species were housed here but over the years there have been additions of various rare kinds of camels, monkeys, kangaroos and parrots. Ages ago, a giraffe was donated to this zoo by Queen Elizabeth. If you have a kid with you, you should definitely visit this attraction.

  • Nice zoo. My wife and I visited during the St Martin festival last Fall. The elephant and giraffe exhibits were fun to visit. However, many exhibits were shut down due to repair or the cold. Likely better in warmer weather during the Summer.

  • Nice zoo. Lot of different area with many type of animals. Animals have most of the time a sufficient place to stay but it's never too much for big species.. However they looks in good health and the zoo is clean and safe. I will probably go back again :)

  • Even though we went off peak and a few places were shut , still spent most the day there , lots to see and fun day out . The zoo has lots of baby animals such as gorilla and elephant baby's , which were great to see. The walk through were amazing , you can go in to areas with lemurs , bats, wallabies and emu etc all loose and walking /flying around with you , for the price it was well worth it and we'll recommend it .

  • What an excellent zoo! Definitely recommend this to anyone I was skeptical at first due to its low cost, thinking it would be a very minimal zoo. Turns out we were incredibly wrong! Probably one of our favourite zoo's we have visited and well worth the money spent, since you can spend the entirety of the day here with its vast size 😊

  • You get to see all the animals. I ran in and only had an hour and a half to see everything and every animal because I was about to miss my flight. The layout of the zoo is amazing and makes it possible for you to see a lot of the animals. I went to the London zoo recently and spent half a day there and didn’t see anything since the layout of many enclosures helps animals just hide and all you see is empty enclosures. But Budapest was amazing. You get to see a lot of the major animals close up. It was an amazing visit
