Lisbon Zoo - have a great time with the animals!

Lisbon Zoo Girafe.What a wonderful afternoon! Last time I went to the Lisbon Zoo with my four (almost five) year-old son and my wife, we had a blast. And I took some pictures to show you what it looks like.

I invite you to discover this 125 year-old zoo with lots of animals, places to eat, drink and rest, attractions and fun!

Start by taking the train for a 15 minute fun tour trough the zoo and appreciate the zebras, the tigers, the birds, the kangaroos, the giraffes, the elephants, the flamingos, the hippos, the crocodiles and so much more... 

If you like an extra-emotion you can do this using the 20 minute Cable Car (Teleférico) tour which goes equally around the zoo but... through the air. Don't worry, it's perfectly safe.
