Botanical Garden and Zoo

An afternoon of pure nature

If you are travelling with children, Asunción's Botanical Garden and Zoo provide a perfect almost two-in-one outdoor activity, both are within the same enclosure, where you can spend a pleasant day with a picnic. You should bear in mind that the Zoo has been around for many years; the animals are in captivity, not in recreated habitats adapted to the particular needs of the 70 species that live there. For its part, the Botanical Garden, created in 1919, provides a large area in which to seek shelter on hot days with more than 110 hectares of Paraguayan flora, including the outstanding exuberance of its ancient trees and a medicinal plants nursery. Both the Zoo and the Botanical garden were created in the mid-nineteenth century on land owned by the president of Paraguay, Carlos Antonio Lopez, where he also had his country house, the Caso de Campo, which now houses the Museum of Natural History.
