Visitor Reviews

This review submitted by Neils Johs. Legarth Iversen January 2001
Zoo Nacional in San Salvador is almost due south of the city centre, and it can be reached by bus 2C through Calle Modelo. If you imagine the area of the zoo as a rectangle (almost a square), you enter through one long side, and leave either here or through a gate in the short side to the south. A series of lakes with at least 3 monkey islands stretches from one short side almost to the other. Along these lakes, away from the entrance, there is a stream bordered by mighty bamboos, and beyond this stream there is a separate section of the zoo dubbed aviario, because it contains exclusively birds. The emphasis in this section is definitely on the spectacular birds. Apart from the presence of one lonely female ostrich this generally means birds of prey and parrot/macaws from the region or at least from Latin America. This part of the zoo is definitely the best equipped and also the most photogenic. The section closest to the entrance is mostly occupied by mammals, though there also is a pond with alligators. The lions have got a huge enclosure bounded by a deep trench; other big cats have less space. The remaining animals are mostly hoofed, but there is a modest, but well stocked herpetarium close to the eateries. No apes. Is it a pretty zoo? Well, it almost totally lacks lawns, but make up for this by the imposing stature of many of its trees and of the mighty bamboos. Instead of being pretty or homely I would rather say that it has a certain grandeur.
