  • The best zoo in metro manila indeed. 4 star because the kennel area is retricted and smells really bad (i thought we we're able see multiple breeds of dogs as well). Seems like its under maintenance during our visit. Anyhow all other areas are awesome and very kid friendly.
  • Had a decent time with the family, the food is not great but also not bad, the staff is very friendly and helpful when needed. My kids favorite part was feeding the giraffe and taking pictures with the monkey and also checking out all the wildlife. The only complaint was the lack of direction and flow. The zoo needs to sit down and construct a map so we know where to go. There was many times we found ourselves coming back to the same place we had already visited. It definitely needs some cleaning up for sure. There is alot of areas that could be beautiful but people just kinda forgot about around the entire park as well as in some animal cages and exhibits. Overall a very good park for the area and my family had a good time. Thank you!
  • Had a great time seeing the different animals here with my girlfriend. Just noticed that there's a lot of closed areas for renovation. Overall, had a great experience. 😃
  • Last visited in 2009. I noticed a lot of improvements and new attractions. My son enjoyed feeding the giraffe. Overall a great experience shared with the family.
  • The zoo covers a big area. Wear rubber shoes, lots of walking to do. Spacious cages for the animals. You can feed the animals with feed bought from the zoo.
