Currently the best zoo I’ve been after zoobic safari. It would take 2 hours to get around the whole place. Clean and spacious comfort rooms. Animals are well fed, occasionally there are cages that have foul smell but that’s normal I think. According to our tour guide the zoo management is planning to acquire a giraffe soon. I notice they didn’t have an elephant, hippopotamus, and zebra. I was amazed to see that they do have hyena, black bears and meerkat which I can only see by watching NATGEO. Guests can interact with the animals, by buying food for selected animals and feed it by them. Free and spacious parking space.
