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
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
If you like an extra-emotion you can do this using the 20
minute Cable Car
tour which goes equally around the zoo but... through the air. Don't
worry, it's perfectly safe.
Don't miss the daily
presentations prepared to you specially the Dolphins and
Sea-Lions Show. It's quite amazing!
The Lisbon Zoo has several prepared presentations for you everyday:
