“Not in good condition”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This zoo is in desperate need of an upgrade. Money either private or public is needed to get this zoo on the road to health. You may find touring this site inappropriate for the kids.

“An absolute unimaginable disaster”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

The Cebu Council should close this hell hole. The condition of most of the animals is shocking. You would have to see it to believe it. Animals kept like this in western countries would be attracting prison terms for their owners.Just close it down. The staff are uneducated obviously no training and a complete lack of empathy with their prisoners. Just close it down. Too much wrong to fix. Rescue these poor poor creatures . For Christ sake is this how you want Cebu Queen city of the south remember by foreign visitors. If this has been going on for 4 years as one reviewer has said then this city should be ashamed of it self. Just close it down. Come on Mr Mayor are you courageous or not. Every single day that goes by these creatures are suffering . Start a fund up and let donations go to transferring these poor poor animals somewhere else. Just close it down . Good on you Philippines thank you for showing me in real life what it was like 500 years ago. I took photos of every company that advertises in the zoo they will be named and shamed like never before.

“A little disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

After traveling around the world, you get use to seeing nice Zoo's. So far, no where in the Philippines have I seen what I would consider to be a nice zoo. But it was still nice to do something out of the ordinary for a change.
