  • The zoo is small and well kept. The animals are close so you can get great pictures. You can even feed the giraffes. Walking around is easy you would need 1-2 hours to see and do everything. Worth the...  more »
  • $10 US for 2 adults and 1 child, hard to beat for a zoo. The promenade is good, about 1h30 to go around. Lots of animals, but we are far from the zoos of San Diego and other big Zoo in the world. The classics are there (Lion, Tiger, monkey, turtles). We can feed the giraffes at hours specify. A nice place to visit, but mostly because the price is affordable. If it was more expensive, not sure I would recommend it because the décor is quite minimalist.

  • Great experience. Perfect for group expeditions. Note to wear comfortable shoes as there will be a lot of walking involved and walk with water cause it can get quite hot and humid. And it is close to the Botanical Gardens and other landmarks. So a bit of sight seeing is in order
  • Child friendly. Be sure to go during feeding times and be sure to feed the giraffes. Some new additions at the zoo. Wear comfortable footwear as at times you have to go at an incline on paths. It tends to be humid as well so stay hydrated.
