Honolulu Zoo, Honolulu Reviews - Write a Review

  • I figured 750,000 visitors a year can't be wrong, and while small (42 acres), the price of $8 bucks is right. Okay, let's start with that I love zoos. Aside that it's sub-tropical and animals don't seem to belong locked up in cages, I enjoy going to them. And while I had free admission, the time was no less special. The zoo is deceptively large, especially if you're used to driving the streets around it. I spent an easy 4 hours visiting every exhibit without water - hint...bring water. The zoo is a great place for children and can easily be traversed with a wheelchair, is clean, and the landscaping is great. Sadly, the same can't be said for the cages - partly because of the humidity and temperature I'm sure, but many seemed to be really dirty...even for being a zoo. The exhibits were great and animals were lively. Monkey and turtle lovers will enjoy, and having spent quite a bit of time in the water with turtles, was amazed at the size of some of the land turtles. Zebras were munching away 15 feet. A gorilla kept ramming its body into the wall. A hippo swam alongside the window doing who knows what. Fortunately for me (and not so for the Honolulu Zoo), I've been to some great zoos - Belize, Woodland. While not in the same class, it does well for a small zoo and surpassed my expectations. If you're looking for a family activity in Waikiki or are just curious, it's a good way to spend the afternoon at least once.

  • We were here on holidays and looking for something else. The zoo is well set out, easy to navigate and there is plenty to view. The exhibits seem a little small, as all zoos tend to have and seeing the animals look so bored and short of stimulation is depressing. We know some zoos do great conservation work but it's tough to see the lives the animals live. Aside from that, great place to take kids and easy to access all exhibits.

  • A great distraction to the busy and bustling Waikiki. A very nice well thought out and laid out Zoo with all the typical attractions. It's so wonderful to walk through the tropical grounds and experience this little touch of animal paradise. Just a short walk from Waikiki beach, there is paid parking close by, but you will need to get there early in the morning to find a spot.

  • Easy to access from Waikiki hotels. Very reasonably priced compared to most zoos. Some enclosures don't seem to be designed to facilitate viewing of animals easily. Some areas near enclosures could do with more shade to allow time spent viewing the animals. Playground for kids is great. Plenty of picnic area. Good facilities below average and $4usd for a bottle of water. So definitely pack your own. Subway just across the road for an easy lunch option.

  • Zoo was pretty good. You have to pay for parking but I think it's only a $1 for 2 hours so pretty cheap. The so itself was under construction in a couple areas so we missed seeing some animals, but everything else was out and about. For was good but spendy. We had a hard time finding a bathroom so if see one use it.
