It is too expensive for entrance ticket with nothing interesting inside the zoo. The aquarium is terrible and the shows are boring except the sea lions show.

I went to see the attraction today and didn't get past the bungalow where tickets were being sold to a long line of people for pictures with the big cats. It nearly made me cry to see them chained to a podium so ignorant people...More

We never chained any of our tiger including "sarah" the picture tiger.Also it will be the most insane thing to do, to drugs the animal just to work for you every day, she probably die long time ago.As a human being we couldn't even thought...More

The place not very exiting, the overall facility not very well maintained. When I was there hardly anyone around. A lot of spider webs and stained glasses everywhere. The shows (bird show, sea lion and dolphin show, tiger show) were quite ok, entertain your kids....More

Tanks and cages are not big enough really cruel and unfair on the animals. Tigers pacing like that signals agitation and their enclosures are too small without any stimulus. The otters have about 2sqm of floor space, cry all the time and climb the cage....More

I wouldn't call it a real zoo. The caged animals are all shown in the shows. Especially the bird and lion show was entertaining. The aquarium was small. If you look for an afternoon entertainment with the kids, I recommend it.

I would recommend a visit here. The while setup is outdated and I am sure if it were in Europe would have been closed down long ago. Dark, damp uninviting, with miserable looking animals in very small enclosures. Save your money.

Tiger Show is about of 40 minutes length, mostly with parrots and about 10 minutes with tigers. Quite acceptable for small island. And aquarium proposed enough local creatures. Recommend to visit for those Who want to spend time somehow. It would be interesting for the...More

Spend your time on other things, don't visit this "zoo". The animals are not treated well and some are ill.
