Visiting Barcelona Zoo on a Sunday morning is an easy to organize a kids activity, guarantying 100% success. Children enjoy the many animals that can (re) discover.  The biggest fun for the parents, in our case, was the “photo safari” with which illustrate this post.

Although the unique Snowflake white haired gorilla died some years ago, the zoo offers a very pleasant visit: Lions, tigers, jaguars, dolphins, reptiles, walruses, bears, birds, elephants, giraffes, hippos, gazelles, penguins, kangaroos, monkeys, orangutans, gorillas, parrots, zebras and many more animals!

DOLPHIN SHOW
I do not remember how many times I’ve seen the dolphin show, but we never get tired of seeing it. Passes on the Dolphinarium are quite extensive (11:30 am, 13:30pm  and 16:30pm). This time with the added attraction of being able to see NUIK, a baby dolphin born at the zoo on October 13, 2012.

COSTA RICA’s TAPIR
Although I confess that my favorite zoo animal is the Tapir, a curious animal that inhabits the humid forests of Costa Rica.

ANIMALS FARM AREA
If your children are small, as mine, save some extra time to visit the farm animals. Your kids can play around in the playground located there. Children may play with some farm animals as goats or donkeys, pet them, interact with them, etc.

In conclusion I would say that the visit to the zoo on Sunday was worth it, and I encourage all families to visit Barcelona zoo at least once a year. There are always new things to see!.
