On top of the monstrous heat, this zoo proved to be a major disappointment. It was not easy for us to navigate to the animals section located at the top of the hill. Upon arriving there, we were disappointed in the lack of numbers and variety of animals. Most of the enclosures were too cramped for the animals being housed in it. Despite all that, we enjoyed the ape house, which was newly opened in late 2013. One has got to feel extremely sorry for the polar bear though for it was subjected to the sweltering heat from the sun.
