It's been close to 50 years since I last visited these gardens. I wanted to see the Seven Ponds area and the memorial to the Honorable LFS Burnham. The 'kissing' bridge, fountain, and grassy areas enticed me to return to sit peacefully on a future...More

Very well kept and clean environment for a third world country. Beautiful exotic animals, some of which can only be seen in South America's rain forest. They have a lot of birds, pumas, and monkeys. Don't forget to take pictures on the love bridge :)

I didn't have high hopes for the zoo so I wasn't disappointed. The animals were well fed and in decent condition but it was still kinda sad. The people working the zoo were friendly enough and seemed to take there jobs seriously as they were...More

Great place. Go with a group or a guide. We saw many birds. Stayed at Cara Lodge. Close by. I heard it is not safe to go alone. But no one seemed to bother us. We were in a birding group.

We spent 2 half days birdwatching in the Botanical gardens, and it was most rewarding. There are also manatees in a pond, and a guide attracted them shaking his hand in the water and giving them grass; so I could admire them, take pictures and...More

Got to see many birds and the walk was refreshing, serene and enjoyable. A popular place for after wedding photos so try not to photobomb. Good place to see the Manatee if you are around near feeding time.

In two hours of waiting, we saw only one manatee briefly. Other rare animals were happy to parade for us, (apart from the Aligators and reptiles who slept through our visit). The birds were stunning in their variety and colours, especially the parrots and macaws....More
