Review of The Zoo

Reviewed December 5, 2012

it's genuine animal abuse here. people throwing food at the chimpanzees, the twenty lions forced into tiny cages, bringing people to the back areas to play with filthy cubs, hordes of guinea pigs (look out for the dead ones), and be sure to check the cocker spaniels and bichon frises on display...

really sickening. but not surprising.

superb but with minimum facilities, poor services, need lots of money to develop it, beautiful animals and huge green spaces but with no services, and not that much clean areas...

I am in general against the zoos, specially the zoos where animals are kept in tiny cages and employees of the zoo capture baby-animals 50 times a day to photograph. The amount of people there is more than expected, this place due to cheap entrance tickets is used by many families as a park to walk and to have a picnic on the flower-beds. It was a sad experience - people have no parks to walk, animals have no escape from tidy cages.

Although, it is still good to visit it, nothing special..
You can also check the Africa Park zoo in the Alexandria road.

It was so upsetting to see the animals in such small cages and areas. Cruel in fact! Why can't something be done about it?
On a very hot day we didn't see any water containers of any sort for the animals to use.
