While in the city of Antalya and you are not feeling that trailing too far from the city, a family with small children or looking to interact with animals from all over the world make your way to Antalya Zoo. One can easily reach it by taking the light rail from Antalya centre. Unlike most of the Western-style zoos, the trip to Antalya Zoo is quite affordable as the only cost for the zoo is the car parking. There are about 800 animals and as many as 80 exotic and domestic species. This spacious zoo has animal shelters, waterfalls, fountains and even camping sites for one to sit and enjoy the day out with the family or friends. As for animals, you can see camels, peacocks, pelicans, zebras, mandarin ducks, raptor birds, African ostriches, bears and snakes are among of the intriguing species you can see up close. With all the usual suspects you would expect to see in the zoo, you really would only miss out on seeing elephants and giraffes. Be sure to pack a picnic, as there are not all the overpriced food chains that you may normally see at a zoo.
While enjoying your day or days in Antalya do pay a visit to Antalya Museum, St. Paul’s Way and Aspendos.
