Was one of the poor Zoos. The habitants were suffering of the hot climate. Anyway it is closed now for building a new and big Zoo. Sure, it will be one of the best, but special care has to be given to the habitants please…..

I would recommend going to the zoo in the late afternoon, especially if the weather is hot. The zoo is small, but you can get up close to the animals
