Located in Guadalajara, Jalisco, the GDL Zoo is a public organization that was founded in 1988 with the motivation to introduce different species of animals, to be a perfect place to be with the family and to generate interest in nature.
Its 50 hectares have witnessed unique moments that have been a great milestone in the history of the park, which you will be able to learn about yourself in its official website: in 1995 the first albino crocodile arrived at a zoo in LatinAmerica; in 2001 a pair of orangutans arrived from Taipei itself or the presentation of the Gentoo penguins in 2016.
The most popular attractions are the aquarium, the Masai Mara Safari, the Sky Zoo and the Antarctica area. Thanks to the Aquarium you will be able to delve into the depths of the sea to meet the most unusual fish; in the Masai Mara Safari you will discover Africa without leaving Mexico. Sky Zoo is a different way to see a zoo from the heights and last but not least you can’t miss the Antarctica, where you will see Emperor, Adelie or Gentoo penguins.
