From pink flamingos to African giraffes, the Honolulu Zoo is home to a little bit of everything from the animal kingdom. Its animal population includes more than 64 reptile, 38 mammal and 160 bird species. The 42-acre facility is organized into three tropical ecological zones: Tropical Rainforests, Pacific Islands and the African Savanna. Among its highlights is a new $12-million, 1.5-acre Asian tropical elephant exhibit that includes a 7,260-squre-foot holding area and two 55,000-gallon pools.

We visited the zoo with my 3 year old and newborn on a recent visit to Hawaii but found it largely underwhelming. Its not the cheapest of things to visit and isn't overly large. Not a problem in itself but there is already only a...More

The animals where amazing, so well looked after, the only disappointment I had was that I went early in the morning and most of all the animals where asleep. Highly suggest an afternoon visit

We went to the twilight tour (about 20 per group) which was guided and informative. Without the heat of the day, there was plenty of time to stand and look at the animals. At the end, we were given biscuits and a drink. A nice...More

This is an attractive zoo within easy reach from the hotels in Waikiki. It's well worth a couple of hours to come and visit the animals. It was fun to see elephants, giraffes, and lots of other wildlife and birds that you might not expect...More

The zoo was ok. Small by comparison to the Philadelphia Zoo. Animals not real active. It is nice for small children and families.

Yep, we took in big bottles of water and snacks. We weren't stopped and bags weren't checked on entry
Aloha. We are planning to stay in a hotel beside Honolulu zoo for 3 nights in May, 2017. I reviewed the parking lot status of Honolulu zoo and found it not easy to find one space. Besides, the parking company has changed (confirmation needed), and guests cannot park there for whole night. I would like to ask the current parking lot condition. If we could still park there overnight? Thank you very much!
