This is not a zoo, it’s an animal concentration camp. The animals are completely neglected. The cages are so small. The place is a absolute disgrace. It’s was heart-breaking to witness. DO NOT Visit.

Although very sad for the imprisoned animals, I really much enjoyed going there 3 times. Beside the tigres and lions, the animals are pretty happy and the elephants are gorgeous. Visit this historical zoo if you can !

to me, some animal enclosures are not safe for the kids unless you hold their hands; especially Hippo and bear enclosures. Fences are too low for kids can climb or slip through. Advise to buy tram tickets at entrance so that you do not need...More
