The zoo itself was wonderful. After purchasing our tickets on-line (no booking fee), we did not have to line up at the end of a long queue but walked straight in. We were given a map which showed the layout and walked through lovely tree lined paths to find the animals. The highlight was seeing the baby elephant, born in January. It was a busy day as it was school holidays and children are free then, so there were lots of families but never too crowded. The only negative was finding the place. We are locals and had a map book but the signage was so poor, we drove right around the block looking for an entrance. Foreign visitors would have even more difficulty.
