  • My grandson really enjoyed the kangaroo and the small train that he could ride. Park is clean. Plan on being there for several hours because there is so much to see 
  • Very good variaty for a small priviet Zoo. Something for everyone, and on-going improvements, it's only going to get better. 
  • When we went there, the animals looked tortured., very dirty and shedding a lot. So maybe the workers should groom them and brush them. In some cages we couldn't see any animals. The smell is awful!!!...  read more »
  • This is a great little hidden gem. It isn't huge, but it isn't tiny, either. They have an interesting set of animals, and you can get really close to a lot of them. It's a good 2-3 hour zoo, definitely not an all day place. Pricing was surprising, in that I felt it was a good value. Many times, going to places like this leaves me feeling ripped off, but this one doesn't. They don't try to nickel and dime you too much, like a lot of these types of places. Overall, I would say it's a great way to spend a few hours with your kids.
  • This place epitomizes neglect to the point of abuse. Spending $15 on ticket to the Lupa Zoo is willfully perpetuating the mistreatment of animals for the profit of unqualified staff. In most exhibits, animals tread on dirt patches and pace anxiously in circles. The vast majority have large patches of exposed skin from hair that has either fallen off or been torn off from stress. The conditions are insufferable. A crocodile in a three foot long plastic tub. Animals desperately gnawing at fences to feed on a patch of grass just beyond their grasp. The only thing that isn't emaciated and lethargic is the zookeeper who lacks the decency to acknowledge guests when asked a question to his face.
  • What a great zoo! The animals are very active . We got to feed the giraffe and got up close to many animals! We loved it!
  • The Sea Otters were my favorite part! So playful, curious, and innocent ;)
  • Amazing zoo for kids and adults to many animals and also give food to giraffe
