  • This zoo is terrible. Animals are in very bad shape and condition. The park is dirty and you can not reach any employees. No place to eat inside. Its very pricey for what you will see  more »
  • Great experience! A lot better than I expected and also the entrance fee has been lowered to 16 bucks for adults. Guides are very kind. You need 3 hours to experience it fully. A must do!
  • We enjoyed our visit! I've read some negative reviews before we got there but I couldn't really understand that. The zoo was well planned, in a quite good shape and they had a lot to show.

  • Nice ambiance. Famliy place good restrooms. Cute shop
