I want to visit so I can push the provocative keeper who had his finger bitten off, into the cage with the lion responsible.
It can have the rest of him.

A 'zoo' that has inadequate facilities for its lions, akin to animal abuse, that allows people to get up close and personal to taunt them to get them to roar! Lions kept in chain-link fences that are comparable to dog kennels. Should be shut down.

Overall a pleasant experience. The venue is currently under construction so eye sores all around. Staff was extremely fun and professional. Need more animals.

This zoo is very tiny and there are limited animals however it seems a family operation and the owner seems to be trying his hardest. There is a little petting show at the beginning that allows interaction with some animals

On Thursday April 12, 2018 I was a part of a Seniors Trip that visited the YS Falls, in St. Elizabeth , Jamaica W. I.
The attractions included: the falls...very relaxing,warm pools, the river emerges from limestone caves and springs, and flows 30 kilometres dropping through seven falls. , Tour guides are strategically placed to assist visitors, chuka canopy tours...a great landscape, meals are provided at affordable prices, menus: Jerked chicken, fish etc
persons are taken to the site by Tractor driven bus .....staff was courteous and helpful . Thumbs up!

When I went to the zoo there was no one else there but me, my husband, niece and daughter but the staff remained professional! They booked us in and did a presentation of animals one by one where you could touch and hold the animals while they did a talk on each animal! Afterwards another guide tour staff took us around the zoo giving us information on each animal we passed! We would feed and hold the animals!

I would recommend this tourist attraction to anyone as it was so nice and lovely one to one interaction from the staff! The staff were also great with the young children!

It was not worth the money paid. I will not recommend visitors to come to the Jamaica zoo. Not impressed with the service and the place is in need of repair.

My expectations were not met as there was a limited number of animals to showcase. The opening act which involved us posing for pics with a few cold blooded animals was very entertaining and the employees were extremely hospitable. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and sensitized the group about the various animals birds and other creatures!!

This is a very small zoo. The owner is your entertainer, and does a good job of letting you interact with some animals.
Yes, it is not like American zoos. The owner is the sole provider. He is doing his best to improve as finanaces allow. If you have the time, please visit this place for the animals, and the personality of the owner. You will get some awesome pictures to take home, and we have an appreciation for the effort they are putting out to improve.
The ONLY con is the music is WAY TO LOUD!!!
