I liked the location. It is spacious and the animals are looked after better than the reports I got. But there could be more improvements and has enough room to add more animals to match the space.

That is one of the worst zoos that i have ever been. It looks like it is deserted. You can not se a happy animal. You have to pay extra for a sleeping panda. Also pay extra for aquarium and it is nothing special. So...More

We are an Australian/UK/US family of 5. We thoroughly enjoyed this zoo and rate it comparably to the Bronx Zoo and the Sydney Zoo. The only downfall was the absolutely shocking penguin exhibit which should be immediately shut down and those poor animals released. Their...More

The animals in the zoo have sufficient space. A number of the exhibits were missing the animals advertized. The Panda exhibit was worth the trip, and it was quite good. The territory is quite hilly. Some stair paths do not have level steps, making them...More

We had such a lovely day here. The animals seem very well kept and fed, even got to feed a hippo and elephant. The zoo is located on a very steep hill, so those with walking difficulties may want to pay to hire a gold...More

Awesome experience, never been to a zoo with such close interactions with the animals in America. Highly recommend it. Take the tour bus to cut down on talking. It's much bigger than you would think.

It was located in mountains but the weather was still hot. A lot of animals were not available to see. The transportation through the zoo was good. They charge you again in aquarium, kids water park, animals show and panda station.
