Lisbon Zoo is a guaranteed crowd pleaser and is a great day out for those visiting the city with children. The enticing collection of wildlife is impressive and features some truly magnificent beasts, including majestic mountain gorillas and rare white tigers. The reptile house is a fascinating draw, and there's a rich and colourful variety of free-flying birdlife on display in the Enchanted Forest. A marvelous way of getting to know the zoo's layout is by the cable car that flies through the canopy. There's also a "train" that chugs around the grounds. If you time it well you can then take the kids over the dolphin show, or perhaps to laugh at the sea lions being fed. Outside of the zoo's boundary is the free-to-enter Animax amusement park with various rides, restaurants and cafes providing further entertainment.
- 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.
- 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.
