“Much nicer than expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

I did not hear many positive comments about the zoo, not even from local people. But I was pleasantly surprised. The zoo is well maintained. They have a good variety of animals, especially monkeys, wild cats and birds. While the zoo is a bit more old school with many cages and less fee space for the animals, one actually gets very good views of the animals. There are many options to buy snacks or something to drink. There is an old house that serves as a small museum and there is a children's playground. One downside is that the museum and certain attractions (bird house, butterfly farm) are closed between 12 and 1 PM. You have to calculate this into your visit or you may miss them. The grounds are very nice with lots of trees and plants creating a cool and shaded atmosphere.

“Good selection of animals but very small enclosures”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

This zoo had a fantastic selection of animals. It is also very cheap to visit and only cost us 9000cop which was approx £3.50. My only problem with the place is that the enclosures are very small. There seems to be a lot of land surrounding the enclosures so I don't understand why they don't extend some of them. A strange breed of fox that we seen looked depressed!
