I've been to lots of zoos on different countries, so I'll be hard: this zoo is not very big, not very beautiful and not well maintained. Worth a visit with kids, as they always enjoy animals and birds!

I visited this zoo with my friends, it was a nice zoo to visit with many animals. They often take in animals that are sick and/or distressed and help them get well.

This was a great day out. Very nice setting. Great range of animals. It is very easy to get around as there are ramps and paths everywhere. We really enjoyed our visit to the zoo. Overall a great day.

Poor enclosures and animals that are not remotely suited to their climate reside here. This zoo gives zoos a bad name. Animal torture and neglect, and arrogance towards the zoo director for not admitting the obvious. The director needs to resign from his position.
