We combined this a visit to the Xmas market in mid December. After a brisk walk to the citadel which is only worth a look as you cannot get in as occupied by French forces and a soldier shouts at you if you step onto the bridge! Went to the zoo only to see a sign that it was closed... More

The fact this zoo is free means it's great for a day out with family and friends. Only problem is it closes during Winter months

Small zoo located by the Citadel. We visited in mid December and naturally several of the tropical animals were keeping warm indoors. There was also some renovation work taking place. Well worth a visit if you are nearby especially considering it's free.

A small zoo situated on the outskirts of the citadel. Entrance is free - added bonus. There are a variety of animals ranging from birds to meerkats, giant turtles to rhinos.

The zoo is free which is brilliant but it is closed between December and May 1st. There are quite a few animals including rhinos, zebra and giant tortoises. Well worth a visit for free if you're there at the right time.

Free entrance, that's the best thing to mention. Can't be compared with other zoos I've already visited, where you have to pay. Worth the visit, you've seen al the animals in 45 minutes. Nice walk in combination with a walk around the Citadel...

Amazing little zoo tucked away by the citadel. Staff were friendly and approachable. Not the largest zoo but the animals were well kept after and attended too. I saw Zebras, meerkats and an array of birds.

A great little zoo, inside the walls of the Citadel. Some really great animals too: rhino, zebra, mouse deer. Much better than many zoos that charge an entry price. Fantastic entertainment for the family - especially for free.
