Interesting place and reasonably priced; however, there is very little shelter from the sun. It is recommended for a cool day or afternoon.

Great and simple zoo. A variety of animals mostly closer to you than other zoos. Many places where you can sit and relax. A playground for children. Looking at the monkeys is just like a movie.
