Guangzhou Zoo was built in 1958, covering an area of 42 hectares. Nearly 5,000 animals of more than 400 domestic and overseas species are raised and exhibited here. It is one of the three biggest zoos in China, attracting more than 4 million visitors every year.

Over 50 years' development, the park has become a comprehensive tourist attraction featuring exhibition and popular science education of animals, supported by amusement and catering facilities. The park offers exhibitions of domestic animals based on different types, such as insect, amphibians and reptiles, birds, primates, beasts of prey and herbivores. It not only houses rare animals only to be found in China, like pandas, golden monkeys, South China tigers, David's deer and black-necked cranes, but also includes rare and valuable animals from all continents of the world, like chimpanzees, giraffes, African elephants, hippos and rhinoceros. In recent years, the park has developed several attractive scenic spots and projects, including the largest onshore ocean world in China, the original and unique outdoor fish exhibition garden—Goldfish Garden, the amusing Animal Behavior Exhibition Hall and the Animal Square where visitors can get close to animals. And tourists will be enchanted by the program of "Animal Feeding Show" which shows visitors the scenes of hippos eating with a wide-open mouth and pelicans catching fishes cunningly with their beak.
