It's hard to find a zoo that creates a completely natural habitat for its animals, and the São Paulo Zoo is no exception. Still, staff try to provide a decent home for the more than 3,000 animals in their care, including local luminaries such as the Brazilian howler monkey and the red-breasted toucan. Tue-Sun 9am-5pm

Through the years this zoo has lost a few animals, but still the best option in São Paulo city. For small children, animals are always an amazing things to see. Ant exhibit is always interesting, with sessions in the afternoon.

Sao Paulo Zoo is located in a lovely area of Sao Paulo. It's a very nice place to go and take a few hours. We recommend to start the visit at 9am to avoid the hours where it would be so crowded.

We absolutely love this place. It's a giant property and they have animals from all over the world. Their collection of south American animals is very impressive. It is a cultural experience as well. Highly recommended.

with many species has a beautiful place but unfortunately this zoo is very old and another problem is that many animals are alone therefore very sad.

Access can be difficult if driving and having to park. I travelled by taxi so no major issues. Zoo is well maintained and has a good selection of animals

Quase tudo fica no ar livre, então é melhor ir num dia sem chuva e o mais cedo possivel para aproveitar tudo.
