  • visit it recently time and what I liked most was the farm for babies in where children could feed to different animals and what I didn't like is that there was little space to eat and was close to the animals, then the smell was nasty.

  • Wide variety of species in a tight space. It's a nice principle to give a home to animals that have been saved from circuses and unlawful treatment. Compared to other zoos we've visited in other countries/continents, it smells like feaces and urine and animals like the big cats are kept in small enclosures. The animals looked healthy at the time of our visit. It appears that there are lots of staff hanging around just checking their phones or having a good time chatting among themselves. Ticket price appears fair for the time we spent there. The extra ticket for the marine show appears excessive. The show is funny but a tad too long at the end. The souvenir shop could diversify and benefit from selling more than stuff toys and bags. For example, educational stuff like posters, books, puzzles, pencil cases and sponsorships for animals.
  • Good placr for entertaiment
  • Great for families to spend the days, animals have their space and look well taken care of
  • nice place, open space, clean and many places with different specific topics
  • Exelent a must visit place
