I've been to zoos around the world and this is in the running for one of the worst, if not the worst. It was fun to see some animals roaming free that one might see caged in other zoos but that was about it. I...More

Wasn't sure to give 1 or 2 stars. Firstly it cost 190$ which was over my backpacking budget. The enclosures were small, but not only that, grim, with a small patch of mud with no food, water or simulates. Reptile enclosures seemed ok, although some...More
