As stated in a few reviews, it's no Taronga, but why would you expect it to be.. its in the middle of Bali for starters, on about 1/1,000,000th the budget Taronga have.
I've been to Zoos all around the world, and its not the worst, I took my daughter and it was perfect for her, she wouldn't have lasted the full day at the Safari Park, which, is excellent. This Zoo you can be in and out in under 2hours.
I've heard complaints on the $24 entry, come on.. get over it, how do you expect a Zoo to run, they probably get no funding from the Indonesian Government either.
There are a few well set up exhibits, the Siamang's in particular, otters, Lions.
It's easy to get around on the footpaths and there is a little bit of shade around.
You can get pretty close to the animals too, which makes for good photo opps.
They are about to renovate the Sunbears too which is a start.
Plenty of Monkey species and Tigers.
The animals all looked healthy.
The Orangutan enclosure whilst big enough, looks boring as anything.. poor guy must go insane. Give him something to climb on!
Some are just WAY too small, the big birds in particular, the White Bellied Sea Eagle would be lucky to stretch his wings out..
The Croc enclosure is barely big enough for 1 of them to swim, let alone 2 in there, no wonder they are so fat.
Anyways, was ok, next time will go back to the Safari Park though.
