Basic tips for visitors to “Plan a Visit to the Zoo”

 

Our zoo is situated in a tropical rainforest and Hilo sometimes is known as the wet side of the island.  Just count on the possibility of a shower and enjoy the lush rainforest that grows because of the rain.

 

Average temperatures in Hilo are between 70°F and 75°F (21 °C and 24 °C). August is the warmest month, and January the coolest. Temperatures here are always comfortable.

 

What to bring: The zoo is a fun place whether rain or shine so bring rain gear and sunscreen for everyone in your group.
