Re: Izmir Zoo

I went there in February with some friends and really enjoyed it. We were there at feeding time, the animals were being given large amount of fresh food and they were in good condition. Some of the enclosures could have been a bit bigger.

Whilst it not huge I think they have done job. Admission was only 3 lira, not sure if that was a winter price, but it does mean that a lot more people can afford to go there. There is a large free car park in front of the park.

Re: Izmir Zoo

Izmir zoo is fantastic value. Been there a couple of times now, spring and autumn and the price was 3TL on both occasions. Free parking too and you don't get ripped off on the drinks and ice creams. Last time we went, entry, parking and lunch for the 3 of us totaled just under £10. The equivalent day at Edinburgh Zoo would have cost £49 just to park and get in. Probably another £20 - £30 for lunch.

Re: Izmir Zoo

Didn't know Izmir had a zoo. It is now on my list of things to do.
Brilliant pictures as usual hijo. Thank you for sharing them with us.

Re: Izmir Zoo

Steve and I went there some tears ago and had a really good day. We loved the while place and the animals are well cared for. It is one of my many lovely memories of our time together. I would love to go again but I don't drive. So can anyone tell me if there is public transport to the zoo from Izmir? I certainly hope there is.

Re: Izmir Zoo

Does anyone have any info on the zoo?

I've checked on the web and all I can find is an article 6 years, stating that the zoo had been moved to the park.

Re: Izmir Zoo

It has its own website here :

?zmir Do?al Ya?am Park?

If you struggle with Turkish you can ask more specific information and I'd be happy to help.


It's a really good day out.
