The Zoo is beautifully organized with signs pointing to various attractions. My favorites were the beautiful flamingos and the orangutans. All of the animals seemed to be healthy and happy. I would highly recommend this zoo.

A hidden gem. Well worth the reasonable entrance fee, and you can easily spend the entire day here. Plenty of shade in the summer, surrounded by a beautiful (If a little sketchy) park.

Incredible renovation done at the zoo. Had a really good time. Go early to beat the crowd. The open area for the Lions was amazing.

They have 3 different levels which you can view these animals. They have a show which you can watch and see the trained seals. One of the best exhibits around.... More
