It was a lovely place to spend the day. There was a wide variety of animals and they are very well taken care of. The elephant exhibit was amazing!

We love going to the zoo, however when it is crowed, the amount of space we have to view the animals is limited in some exhibits. The food prices are insane, that's why it's wise to bring your own food!!

Great zoo for the size with the elephant exhibit and the Australian exhibit exceptional. Very accessible for strollers, wheelchairs and electric scooters. Tram is even equipped with a ramp.

I was really impressed with this zoo. It was big and had a huge variety of animals from all over the world. It is on par with the most well known zoos.

There is a tram that runs the outside circuit of the zoo and drops off, and picks up passengers every half hour at the tram stops. It does not go into the various exhibits like the Australian Outback or the Elephant... More
