Hamilton Zoo reviews
The zoo is tightly secured with reinforced hardened glass and steel fence. It is safe for us and the animals. Overall, it is awesome. more »
We visited this Zoo last week. They had a good number of different species of animals. All looked to be in very good condition. Well feed and relaxed. It is a great place to fill in several hours... more »
Had an amazing day at the zoo. The staff at the front desk are a delight and the zoo keepers are very informative. Perfect for families, friends or couples. Can easily spend a day there. Food at the cafe is great too. Highly recommend doing the lemur and rhino encounters while you're there! Can't wait to go back again.
Absolutely brilliant place to visit. Suggest people take a pair of Binoculars with them to get the best look at some of the magnificent animals in an area called the Savannah. This is a huge open space and animals often are away on the far side. Highly ++++ recommended. Beautifully maintained Zoo with terrific staff.
