The Emperor Valley Zoo was opened in 1952, just five years after the founding of the Zoological Society of Trinidad and Tobago Inc. Named for the blue Emperor butterflies that once frequented the valley, the Emperor Valley Zoo’s exhibits cover more than seven acres, and while the exhibits include exotic animals like lions, ocelots and giraffes, the emphasis is on regional flora and fauna, including local crab-eating raccoons, boa constrictors and birds like the Trinidad motmot. The beautifully cultivated grounds offer winding footpaths through flamingo ponds, hummingbird gardens and African and South American exhibits.

Practical Info

The zoo can be found on the northern edge of Queen’s Park Savannah, just west of the Royal Botanic Gardens. The zoo is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., every day of the year except Christmas Day, and the Monday and Tuesday of Carnival. Admission costs adults $30, children 12 and under $15.
