Read MoreShow Less
With over 3,000 animals and about 900,000 square meters of land, the São Paulo Zoo(Zoológico de São Paulo) is the largest, most comprehensive zoo in Brazil. The zoo is located within the Parque do Estado, a massive reserve of the region’s native Atlantic rainforest. This area is a lesser-known oasis of Brazilian jungle on the outskirts of the bustling city, and is a favorite among travelers with children. Due to its massive size, and other activities offered in the park, visitors should allot at least a half-day to explore.
A unique feature of this zoo is its incorporation of the natural landscape, which includes the lush rainforest and several lakes formed by the Ipiranga River. The São Paulo Zoo is home to many native animals of Brazil and plays a part in preserving and recovering threatened native species, like the lion monkey, neotropical cats, and the stunning Lear’s macaw — a deep blue parrot with bright yellow markings. There’s also an impressive array of colorful, tropical birds, snakes and frogs, many of which are indigenous to Brazil. Other highlights include various species of monkeys, giraffes, elephants, hippos, camels and big cats like tigers and lions.
