Explore the historical Jardim Zoologico with its 300 species of animals, many of which are endangered. Dr. Van Der Leen, who owned the largest aviary in the country, founded the zoo in 1884 with the support of a few others. This zoo is focused on conservation and the continuation of endangered species. Learn about its efforts by participating in an educational program or joining in a recreational activity on site. You can see more than 2,000 animals, including 157 species of birds. The zoo also offers a number of entertaining exhibits, including a dolphin show. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Lisbon holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Jardim Zoologico and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

We had so much fun, the only photo I could get was of this people-loving ape! There was just so much to do and see! Our 7 year old had never been so excited! This beats every zoological park I have... more »
I love this zoo. A lot of different animals including koala, lions, elephants, dolphins, tropical reptiles and birds. Great dolphin show and free flying bird show. Free of charge cable car going above the entire zoo. Wonderful
Wide variety of animals, loads to see. Nice open space to walk through and also for the animals. Not too crowded, did not have to wait long/at all for most animals. Dolphin show was fantastic, a must see. Reasonably priced tickets. Would highly recommend for anyone.
