family day activity

The zoo is really big. So, if you visit this place in a winter day like us don't forget your hand gloves and beret. Our doughter loved every moment of our family day in the zoo.

The place is good for a nice walk! I was not too impressed by the type of animals or the layout of the place.

Gaziantep doesn't have much going for it. But this zoo was pretty nice considering it is in Turkey. Worth the few bucks to get in.

This is a big zoo and the animals seem not to unhappy. You can take your kids, they would enjoy.This is a nice activity for a Sunday or week day ( less busy). Access: you can take a taxi Or take the tram till university and take a taxi from university to the zoo, that will cost much cheaper. On... More

This zoo is one of the best in the region and the same might even be said about the whole country. Everyone should visit, especially the otters. They were the cutest.

I'm not a big fan of zoos in general but this one wow. This is so sad for animals to be locked up in these tiny cages. I also understood that it's the biggest, like in Europe. Well that might be a joke because it's pretty small. Really avoid this disgusting place

Never seen a Huge zoo like this one before. We used to see the animal in a small cages, but this one makes humans walk in a narrow roads while animals enjoys the freedom of place. A very large and Diversity of all kinds of animals. Its a must visit place not only in Gaziantep but in all Turkey.
