Panaewa Rainforest Zoo & Gardens
Panaewa Rainforest Zoo & Gardens Review
Billed as "the only natural tropical rainforest zoo in the United States," this sweet zoo is the home of white Bengal tiger Namaste, whose daily 3:30 feeding is quite a sight. Among the other animals here are such native Hawaiian species as the state bird, the nene goose, and the io (hawk), as well as lots of other rare birds, monkeys, and lemurs. To get here, turn left on Mamaki off Highway 11; it's just past the "Kulani 19, Stainback Hwy." sign.
