This zoo should have been closed down years ago. It is in very poor condition. Signs are falling down if not missing altogether. Very few animals and they look to be in very sad shape. It is not worth your time or money. The Dusit...More

Perhaps the first zoo in the Philippines to ever have varieties of species, mammals to reptiles, fishes to birds etc. I remember getting face to face with the king of the jungle.
