They work continously to better the enclosures / places where the animals are kept, you see the animals are in good conditions and they even have been successful in reproducing different species such as tigers and suricats.
There are different areas such as the aviario, where you see birds flying around, the place for water animals, the nocturnal animals place and others. Colombian and other exotic animals can be seen!

I walked there from downtown, not a hard walk at all, but make sure you know how to say Zoo in Spanish if you want help with directions, pronouncing it as it spelt will just leave people wondering what you are saying.
The animals are great, you can go in the aviary and if you're lucky a bird will land on your shoulder. The staff was very nice and very knowledgeable. Love the girl that took us through the butterfly area.
There are iguanas sleeping in the trees, but unless you know to look up, you'd never see them. The way I found out was a 1.5 meter one, must have rolled over in it's sleep and it fell on me. Scared me, and I jumped about 1 meter in the air. The staff couldn't stop laughing (and I don't blame them I'm sure I looked like someone from America's Funniest Videos). It's a very small zoo, but it has most of the South American animals with a mix from Africa and North America.
Great learning experience.

It is the best Zoo in Colombia, and probably one of the best in latinamerica. GREAT place for kids. Price is low. Parking is easy and cheap. MUST see: lemures (Madagascar), and now a white Tiger (precious). One of the best places where to go when you visit Cali. Surroundings are nice and safe.
