I love zoos, but not this one. There were so many people throwing food at the animals; bears, elephants, the only ones to escape this were behind glass. Not that it would be okay, but it wasn't just peanuts or natural thing it was all kinds of food and some litter, and not just children doing it, there were lots of adults. No staff to stop them, in fact apart from cleaners for the loos we didn't see and anyone after the entrance.
Some people climbed over a barrier to feed the camels and were teasing them. This was not a young man, but an older woman who encoraged young childrento do the same.
Maybe being English I am too much of an animal lover, but the food along with the banging on the glass, shouting at animals and using a flash where signs told you not to, just upset me.
In addition lots of people were smoking and drinking, which didn't seem appropriate.
The zoo lends out golf carts to help people get round, we saw one being driven by a group of young guys, all drinking, the driver had a pint in his hand and was stearing with the other. Golf carts don't pick up much speed, but enough to hurt one of the many children walking around on the same paths. Again, no staff.
On the plus side, there were lots of animals and it is well laid out.
I hate giving negative rewiews, hut I was upset by the treatment of the animals and people might want to give this a miss on their trip.
