How this place is allowed to operate is beyond me! Don't even know where to start it was so awful...
Tiny cages for leopards and tigers, smaller than our hotel room no grass all concrete and they smelled like they had never been cleaned. Tigers pacing around or chained up.
Elephants chained by ankles so they cannot move at all, standing swaying - the staff said they sway because they are happy...what a joke!
Crocodile enclosure looks more like a breeding ground for handbags..more than 30+ crocs in tiny area no shade hardly any water.
Monkey areas are no better, all concrete no trees - it's awful :(
We did one lap of the place and had to leave I've never felt so sad and helpless before!
I wish my money had gone to a more responsible place than this - they don't care about the animals and it shows in the disgusting condition of the zoo.
Please please DO NOT go to this place!
There are far better places to see animals up close for cheaper!
