  • The visit left me feeling terribly sad. The animals had so little space and looked miserable. The zoo itself looks rundown. We've visited Valencia zoo, which was just lovely. The animals had so much.....  more »

  • Great place to visit with loads of animals there. I spent about 3 hours there but I reckon you could spent longer. Bits of it were under development but still good to visit. Maybe bring your own food and drink in with you as fairly expensive food there. But there are loads of picnic area's to sit. Not really any shows which would have been nice but still good.
  • Now this is how a zoo should look and feel like. You can see that the animals are not just captive...tools for making money. And there are some very impressive examples of how much people can care about animals. I very much recommend visiting it. Congratulations to the employers!
