easily reached by Metro, much of zoo built into and up a hill which is where wonderful one or two person cable cars excel, almost like ski-lift chairs drifting slowly above many enclosures, a great way to see animals relaxing. seemingly oblivious to humans passing by overhead. a lovely medium sized city zoo, well worth a visit.

Could not fault this zoos work. Very clean and tidy!! Also you can see that the animals are very well cared for!! Cable car is free and you have great views around the zoo! I think the only downside is the food outlet that we ate in. From the outside it seemed ok but we got a horrible cheap burger... More

Zoo is old but well situated and easy to walk through and see all of the exhibits in a park-like setting. Dolphin show was very entertaining. Although we did not eat there, there are many food choices and shady areas to eat. Overall a great experience!

We spent about 4 hours inside the zoo! There are so many animals and the zoo itself didn't have many people there. 90% of the animals are in appropriate environments and look happy! There were a lot of baby animals, it was nice to see how well the zoo is going with reproduction. The dolphin show is also amazing! Possibly... More

We had an absolute great experience. At first I thought it was a bit pricey, but at the end of the day it's every cent worth it. From the cleanliness to the professionalism and wonderful staff. The dolphin show was superb and one of the best I have seen. A must if you are doing some sightseeing in and around... More

We absolutely loved our day here. We arrived just before 11am and were amazed to find a dolphin and sealion show (no extra charge) just about to begin- others at 3 and 5pm. Probably not very politically correct, but the show was amazing with the keepers diving along side the Dolphins we could view through a clear sided tank -... More

AMAZING ! They have a cable car you ride over the whole zoo, looking down in to animals' pens - it's fantastic ! We loved the fluffy bunnies and the tortoises you could pet, and there are plenty of monkeys and rhinos and lions and bears. It's a great zoo - GO.

This is the place to go for having a fun day, The last time I visited it was 10 years ago and you can see the differences: it's cleaner and has more animals. The dolphin show is a must see and the birds show is amazing.
