The Rio de Janeiro Zoological Gardens had been established in 1888 and lies on Quinta da Boa Vista area. This zoo has over two thousand five hundred animals from around the world.

Several Brazilian species of animals and birds can be seen in this place. Another interesting point about the zoo is that one has to walk in through an aviary when entering the premises. The tropical birds with their many bright colors are definitely worth the visit. Do keep in mind that the zoo is still not completely functioning so some parts of the zoo might be under construction when you visit so they may not be accessible. However, all the permanent exhibits are always open to the tourists.

  • I would call this a farm and not really a zoo. it's kinda sad many of the animals look as if they are not being taken care of very well. some looked malnourished. many areas look as if they need repairs too. and not to many options to eat here either. bring food and water.

  • The Zoo is under repairs. Because of that, not all animals that used to be shown there are available. Moreover, the ticket is a bit pricey for a place that is not working in its full service. It's a nice walk with family and friends though.

  • A big área of the zoo is under maintenance and the price is too high for the quality they offer. It is a very beautiful place and remember me of my childhood

  • Horribly taken care of. The poor animals are like waiting on death row. Shame

  • It is a bit small. And about 1/2 of the zoo was closed off.
