My Free Zoo has a similar feel to Upjers other popular tycoon management game My Fantastic Park. The game is free to play and runs in your browser making it very accessible.


In My Free Zoo you’re approached by director Welmington and he begs you to help save the zoo from financial disaster. The zoo hasn’t been making enough money in recent times (and no wonder since he only had a pair of sheep in it). This is where players will step in to save the day by creating a zoo with all sorts of rare and exotic animals.

To create your ultimate zoo you’ll have to build the necessary enclosures, select your animals, build supporting stalls, hire staff and plant decorations. My Free Zoo isn’t as easy as placing every animal you can find in an enclosure though as each animal has their own variety of stats which must be carefully considered.

Some animals are particularly attractive with children for example while others attract elders, men or women instead. Each animal also comes with a rarity rating and breeding chance which allows players to breed animals together in the breeding station (babies are always a popular attraction).

As you would expect animals also have particular enclosure requirements. While starting animals might be comfortable in a variety of different enclosures the rarer animals available to players are much more demanding and require special homes.


My Free Zoo isn’t short on animals either with nearly 30 types that range from common sheep and pigs to flamingos and elephants. To keep you busy My Free Zoo has nearly 200 different achievements so there is never any excuse to not know what to build next.

Animal lovers will like what My Free Zoo offers with plenty of animal orientated gameplay. If you aren’t an animal fan though you’ll definitely want to look at Upjers similar game My Fantastic Park instead to get a tycoon gaming fix.


  • Bring the zoo back from financial ruin.
  • Build a variety of different enclosures to house your animals.
  • Play for free and in your browser.
  • Breed animals together to create the best attraction of all, baby animals.
  • Nearly 200 achievements to try and complete.
