  • One the filthiest places I have visited! In need for a major revamp! Animal enclosures are dirty and you can just tell those animals are not happy! We left after 20mins!  more »
  • In the input range is indicated on the (pitifully held) Tiger around with this (extra charge of course) to make... a photo The entire enclosure are decrepit and dirty. Many birds are shown, a bear enclosure, in which an extremely disturbed bear runs wild in the district is behind it. Then come installations for the elephant and crocodile shows, a small snack bar and then behind the Aquarium. Everything really dirty, unkempt and in terrible condition. Then come the (too little) monkey cages and just before the exit, then 2 Thais with a 1/2 m3 sit small cage in which a completely deranged monkey is his friend for a few baht for photos to be taken out... One of the most catastrophic zoos I've ever seen!

  • Zoo in reconstruction and who needs. Old design, type zoo of Vincennes before rehabilitation. Any injured animals as indicated by some, but this style of zoo experiences. The Croc show is not worth Crocodile Farm and garden of orchids to successful performance of no fleurie (the same day I had 4 flower in my garden). The elephant show is nice and the protagonists men and beasts are enjoying themselves. Overall, there are better to do...

  • Horrible zoo. Worst zoo I've ever been to. Poor animals are forced to do acts and treated like garbage. elephants are chained to the floor and monkeys are abused to do acts. Animals look sick and facility was totally disgusting. I held the monkeys and poor things refused to go back to the owner. It was doing everything possible to run away from them before being thrown back into a cage. Very sad place. Please don't spend the money to support such a horrible place.
  • If I can select less than one then I will be doing it. The wrost Zoo I ever been. The Zoo so dirty, lots of cages are empty. The Monkey show was discusting, the monkey was with a rope and forced to do the show, then we went to corcodile show another disaster, then we left the park without continuing the place or even to see the elephant show. The aquarium was another disaster. The place full of bad smell, insects and mosqetous.
  • This zoo is a pretty nicely run facility. You can get up close and personal with animals that other countries would never allow. For instance, "Take your photo with a Tiger". A real adult Tiger on a chain. Walk up and sit with it for a while and get your photo taken. It was tempting for me, but I'm not a cat person. The real test of a happy zoo is how the elephants are treated. While these elephants do not have enough room and are kept on chains, they didn't look abused. Ok, maybe keeping them on chains is abuse but after seeing how these animals are treated at the local Elephant Trek Adventures, seeing them relatively ok was a nice thing. There is a nice assortment of birds and most of them will take banana from you. Banana bunches are sold throughout the park for feeding animals. The Hornbills are most common here and they take food from you so slowly and gently often offering it to another bird or even back to you before eating it. Great place for kids as there are Crocodile shows, Monkey shows and Elephant shows many times a day.
  • Absolutely horrible zoo. Please do not come to this zoo. Animals are kept in terrible conditions, pacing and begging for food. Do not support this zoo
  • The zoo is not at all maintained.. The animals are kept in poor conditions. There are animals shows with monkey, crocodiles and elephants. Photo booths with an adult tiger, pythons and an orangutan. Animal exploitation at its best. Please do not entertain this kind of half-hearted money oriented places.
