We had some spare time in Manaus after visiting a jungle lodge so we decided to try the CIGS zoo. The zoo was small but the animals had reasonably big cages (to be in Brazil). We spent 2h at the zoo but I think you...More

This is a rescue centre for Amazonian animals, many in huge enclosures. It was very hot in December but the animals are fascinating to watch in an attractive setting.

The CIGS zoo has improved a bit in recent years apparently, but is still about the quality you'd expect for a zoo around the 1960s. The animals do seem healthy enough, but many of them are in very small and inadequate cages.
