Conflicted whether to give it a rating of 1 for too small and "layout/design" or a 3 for doing the most they can w/ the allotted space and funding. This zoo is built on the side of a hill so considerable steps (and ramps) for people. Animal exhibits are mostly terraced. There are some nice city views due the elevation... 更多
As the main zoo in the city, I'm sure it's going to be a fun day out for the family, but truly this is one of the more saddening zoos I've been to in the world. It feels very outdated - little thought has been given to the environments the animals are in nor their ability to socialise and thrive.... 更多
We went here on a whim on our way to Cerro San Cristobal and were glad we did! It's on the side of the hill so there are lots of hilly paths and you can kind of get lost - in a fun way - but I wouldn't recommend this zoo to people with mobility issues. Also, there's a little... 更多
the animals are in a terrible state. As australians, seeing the kangaroos freezing in snow with no protection was terrible. The tiny entry fee is great for locals but clearly not providing enough finances to give good shelter. I wont go again and I wont promote it.
Took the funicular railway half way up to the summit. Started at the top of the Zoo after paying fee. Terrific zoo. Walking guide was very helpful. Saw some awesome animals especially the white tigers, monkeys, bears, condors and reptiles. Seriously worth a visit. Then went back up to the top of the zoo and retook the funicular to the... 更多
I really liked this zoo. It's small and only took 1.5 hours to see everything. The animals were in great shape, numerous and active. Too some great close-up photos as the animals seemed interested and curious about people. Very close to other tourist sites and the downtown area. If you are a zoo person, it's worth the visit!
Great selection of animals, situated above the city with fantastic views over Santiago. It has a personal feel, as you can get close to the animals, and with the cheap entrance price of $3,000 ($1,500 for students), it's definitely worth visiting.
My favourite ones are #Alpaca #LLama #Vicuna #Guanaco #RedPanda and #Felinos. You will also be rewarded with a spectacular view- make sure you get off the Vernacular on the way up the mountain as it only stops on the way up and not down.
Arriving at the Santiago Zoo I found it exactly as TripAdvisor comments had noted. Somewhat small, but beautifully terraced up the hillside. There is a funicular if needed but I just walked around up the various pathways. There is a definite emphasis on the penguins, with a small reptile area, plenty of birds and an impressive aviary, but also lions,... 更多
On the plus side, it is small and cosy, the variety of animals is good and présents both exotic and local/chilean animals alike. The location is fantastic and boasts wonderful views of the city below. The animals seem healthy and in good condition, weight, appearance and all. However, it is too small : I feel sorry for the elephants, girafes,... 更多
