In 1963 it was decided to create a Zoological Park for the city of Tunis. The project included 5 Ha.

In 1969, it is a park of 13 Ha which is designed by German architects of the city of Cologne.

In 2017 it was closed for renovation for 6 months

Arriving at The Belvedere park we take a stroll along the lake before entering the zoo. After the the entrance we meet some penclosures for ungalates like fallow deer, sabel antelopes and the addax. In this area we also have the savannah as well as some horses and cows. After the aoudad and wild boar we stand in front of the Arabian camel. Turning right we turn left at the brown bear enclosure. The South american area follows with capybaras and llamas. After we find the pachyderm area with hippos and rhinos. Pasing the guinea pigs we enter the carnivore area with especially cats like tigers and lions, but some canides to like the fennec andthe jackal. They are followed by an area for birds. At last we meet some monkeys.
