Oahu's only Zoo!Flag review
Located at the end of the Waikiki strip of hotels and attractions, this Zoo is the ONLY zoo on Oahu! There, you will find thousands of different species, all presented in a well-maintained facility. It is very roomie, enough to bring in your own food and mats and enjoy a peaceful picnic on one of the big lawns. There is always refurbishment going on, but I understand its about the future, so I don't mind certain parts of the zoo being under construction. My daughter always gets a kick out of the elephants and then traditionally takes a picture with the baby elephant statue. The reptile cave is also a favorite of ours as well as the playground, of course right next to the icee booth, and no zoo can go wrong with a petting zoo!
Tips for Families
Check the local weather before you choose which day to go so you won't get stuck getting drenched in some rain. There are limited places that provide shelter within the zoo. You can bring in your own food and drinks, just please don't litter around these gorgeous creatures!

Honestly, I think the last time I vivisted, was probably WAAAAAAAAAY back in middle school days...Its cool to see some updates and renovations have been made. Its a cool spot to take the family, especially with the additi...
We decided to walk to the zoo as it was about a 25 minute walk from our hotel and it gave us something to do than go to the beach and take a tour. At the admission booth, we noticed they gave a discount for military but only for US military. There's a photographer who takes your picture and they have the photo, magnet, and keychain available for purchase. When you first walk in to the right we saw monkeys, elephants, and turtles. I wasn't sure if I would be impressed with the animals. But there was an African animals section that I really enjoyed seeing giraffes, zebras, lions, tigers, and hippos. We spent less than 2 hours at the zoo. It's a great place for families as there's a petting zoo, park, and lots ...
(Gunther & Tinka Foreign accent from "Shake It Up" on Disney Channel): "ZOO-PER BIGGEAR AND BEATER THAN THE WAIKIKI AQUARIUM!!!" My son drained my camera battery cuz of all the pictures he was taking, which I didn't discover until we reached the luau afterwards and were unable to take ANY pictures. There were a lot of animals here, unrestrained peacocks walking around, a separated area for the keiki's to explore, a petting zoo, and a cool fish tank that you can stand in the middle of. A great zoo, compared to some "zoo's" in the U.S. that you pay an arm and a leg for only to discover that they seem to have a shortage on animals. Tixx were reasonable, but when we bought our tixx, the lady gave us the discount...
