Overview

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.

I did not see any so my suggestion would be no, only service dogs. If you want to go give them a call when you are there they will be only too pleased to answer the question better than I can for you.

It is set up by the hour so you deposit enough money to cover the time you estimate your visit.. it is paid into a machine near the entrance. You can always exit to add money and re-enter.
