Zoo, Honolulu: 15 reviews and 46 photos

WHAT A GREAT^ TREAT TO CHECK OUT THE HONOLULU ZOO. I HAD BEEN WANTING TO SEE OTHER ZOOS.. .BUT I DIDN'T REALIZE HOW MUCH THEY HAVE ADDED TO THIS ZOO...MY DAY WAS REALLY A DELIGHT HAVING GONE TO THE ZOO!!!! Nobody comes to Hawaii to see an Indian elephant, or African lions and zebras. Right? Wrong. This 43-acre municipal zoo in Waikiki attracts visitors in droves. If you've got kids, allot at least half a day or more. The highlight is the new African Savannah, a 10-acre wild preserve exhibit with more than 40 uncapped African critters roaming around in the open. The zoo also has a rare Hawaiian nene goose, a Hawaiian pig, and mouflon sheep. (Only the goose, an evolved version of the Canadian honker, is considered to be truly Hawaiian; the others are imported from Polynesia, India, and elsewhere.)

For a real treat, take the Zoo by Twilight tour, which offers a rare look into the lives of the zoo's nocturnal residents. Tours are Saturday from 5:30-7:30; the cost is $12 for adults, $8 for children 4-12. Call 808-926-3191 for more information.
