The Zoo isnt that Big, however the decoration and the way they displayed the Zoo, looks like a beautiful Journey in a Jungle full of greenery and animals and some Parks for kids. Its an experience for both kids and Adults.

Was a rainy day and it was recommended that we go to zoo. The zoo is very nice with lots of indoor exhibits so you can escape the rain when needed. The elephant area is nicely done.
