I'm not a huge fan of zoos but Auckland Zoo is the best I have ever visited. Their conservation efforts and affiliated programs are exceptional, and the animals are given lots of engaging enrichment which is lovely to see.
Good facilities, although the car park fills up very quickly on good days!
Went there one month ago with my mum. The tiger was so active running around and we were able to see the kiwi bird running just in front of the glass which made us very excited. We also saw red pandas, they were extremely cute. There were less animals than we went a few years ago as I remembered.
I have been going to this Zoo since i was a kid, and i love watching it change and evolve. Its such a shame the elephant enclosure is gone as it was such a hit with the kids - but the big cats are a close favourite of ours as well. Great zoo, excellent layout.
Took the kids there (they hadn't been to a zoo before) and it great watching the fascination on their faces. The big cats were their favorite, they couldn't get over how big the cats were compared to our one at home. This is an excellent zoo and great education place to take kids. Will defiantly be returning.
