Lisbon Zoo is a magnet for young, curious minds. Kids can spend hours here discovering the wonderfully diverse array of wildlife that calls the zoo their home. Residents include rare and beautiful white tigers and a family of majestic mountain gorillas. Dozens of different primates from around the world amaze with their energetic antics but it's the sleek dolphins and sea lions that often steal the show, especially during feeding time. Youngsters can wander the "enchanted forest" and have fun seeing how many birds they can spot. There's also a special children's farm where smaller kids can meet cute and cuddly domesticated animals. Getting around the zoo is an adventure in itself. There's a train that snakes around the enclosures, including the fascinating reptile house, and overhead a cable car threads its way around the verdant canopy. An amusement park further sparks the imagination.
- Best for Things to Do with Kids Because: This unique Lisbon visitor attraction is especially appealing to kids and family groups. It's also an important learning opportunity that highlights the world's environments.
- Best for Outdoor Activities Because: The zoo champions various conservation awareness initiatives, and promotes the welfare and sustainability of the world's six species of great apes and 16 species of gibbons.
