This zoo should be closed down, the animals look miserable, Mali the elephant is in confinement and it brought tears to my eyes seeing such a sad animal. Boycott the zoo and set them free! Mali holds her own tail because she is so lonely... Do not go.

The images of the ill-treated, sad and lonely elephant named Mali will never leave my mind. Not only is Mali by herself in a poor environment she also is clearly very ill, depressed and stressed. I later found out that she was taken from her home environment while she was still nursing and has been in this zoo and disgusting... More

While I enjoyed the day with my fiance, I couldn't believe we were in a zoo! Where are the animals? Maybe they're around the next bend or over that way. Nope! oops tell a lie! There was a sleeping lion and we also saw an elephant and hippopotamus. There also was a monkey locked up in the distant cage. But... More

The animals here are miserable especially the elephant Mali. Mali is in obvious physical pain unable to stand on her left front foot. What is wrong with these "caretakers"?

Visited yesterday Manila Zoo with my family composed of 5 adults and 5 children. Find the zoo disappointing as nothing had changed since the first time me and my hubby visited this attraction. The changes to be noted were the increase in admission fee of P 100.00 for adults and P 60.00 for kids, the construction of longer and more... More

It is very obvious. That these animals are miserable. It is hot, humid, no breeze and dirty. Granted I am spoiled by the San Diego Zoo. Still it is the responsibility of any zoo management. To provide a healthy environment for its animals. There more photo ops with some animals here then elsewhere. This zoo is within walking distance of... More

Me and my 3 kids went to Manila Zoo last April. My kids enjoyed our visit even they were looking for some zoo animals like giraffe etc. My kids love Mali the elephant and the hybrid of a zebra and a horse. The zoo needs an improvement and they should put the tigers in a large cage not in a... More
