  • A first-class zoo in suburban Rizal, it is comparable to Singapore Zoo in terms of expanse and animal variety. It feels though that the zoo is understaffed and the place is too big to roam into without printed maps and guides. Nevertheless, as a first of its kind zoo in the country, there is so much potential and room for improvement.
  • This is my most memories place, its just so gorgeous crocodiles I ride on a donkey so beautiful I comes here at my Birthday Loved it and you know guys its the biggest zoo at the Philippines so feel free to go! Like this if you love animals,
  • Too many kinds of animals in the zoo. It is very nice to let your kids see personally those animals that ussually can be seen in the wild.
  • Great zoo. Sadly no elephant
  • There's a good amount of animals to see. Shame they don't have maps though, It gets a bit confusing.
