Comments / pictures

The zoo in Alexandria is the second largest zoo in Egypt, after the Giza Zoo in Cairo. Despite having numerous rare and endangered species on display, the zoo does not effectively educate its visitors; its main priority is leisure.

For a cheap entrance fee, guests can walk around the zoo and view a selection of animals from around the world - and for a small extra charge, most of them can be fed or can even be ridden. The species on display include: Asian Elephant, Common Hippopotamus, Lions, Bengal Tigers, Leopards, Striped Hyenas, California Sealions, Giraffes, Zebras, Nilgai, Scimitar Horned Oryx, a selection of bears (including a polar bear) and numerous species of monkey. There is also a reptile house, a museum and a 'birds and small mammals' section of the zoo. The reptile house is home to several endemic Egyptian species, including the Egyptian Cobra, the Nile Crocodile and the critically endangered Egyptian Tortoise.
