We've tried going in the morning (the best we've experienced so far) and often go in the afternoon and have even tried late afternoon (near closing time) but the animals always seem to be sleeping. The giraffe, zebra, and rhinos are usually walking around but the lions are always sleeping. We did get to see them sleeping pretty close to the glass which was exciting. One visit the tiger was pacing. We're regular visitors because my daughter loves animals, we just wish they were easier to see at times (and awake).

The zoo itself isn't amazing but it is a great way to spend an afternoon before doing things in Honolulu. The location is really convenient, right off of Ala Moana blvd. There is the normal assortment of animals, I don't remember seeing anything that really stood out. Just don't go in with your hope too high and you should enjoy yourself!

I have been to this zoo several times, and I have always enjoyed it immensely. They even serve veggie burgers as the concession stand! The birds are especially impressive, with a wider array of birds than I have seen in any other zoo. The animals seem to be well taken care of, and are usually quite active. You can view most of the animals at a closer range than a lot of the other zoos I have been to. My only complaint is that there always seems to be a ton of mosquitos flying around, so be prepared with either long pants and sleeves or bug spray.

A lot has changed since the last time that I have been to the zoo many years ago. When I recently went backed I was surprised to see the changes they made since the last time Ive been there. They added a new African safari trek type thing that makes you feel like you are walking on foot around Africa with animals peaking out from bushes and the talk grasses. They also still have the petting zoo which is basically the same and still quite a popular attraction with the kids.

My kids and I never tire of the zoo. They are currently learning about animals in school so our next visit should be interesting as there will be renewed interest in the animals we'll see.

We became members to gain free entry each time and we have since got our money's worth. I have noticed a few changes over the last year with the expansion of the safari, and additional exhibits. I recommend arriving before noon (if possible) when it's a little cooler and hopefully less crowded (parking will be easier too!). Bring hats, lather on the sunscreen, and have snacks and drinks available. Food is available in the park but can be expensive. The entire zoo can be seen thoroughly in a day, so take your time and enjoy your stay.
