The zoo has a good variety of animals. It is a very good day out for the children. Unfortunately the train and the cable car were not working that day

The price is quite expensive, but it worth. The dolphin show is fantastic. The cableway ride offer a beautiful view of the whole zoo as well as the restricted areas.

We arrived at the zoo, it was very quite, the animals looked like they had not been feed for days. Some of the reptiles looked dead. They should consider closing this zoo down! Cruelty to animals !

It is just cruel that the city council allows this zoo to be open. I have never seen such cruelty in my life. There is not space for animals, its tiny and goes upwards all the time. The elephant in the so called elephant enclosure ha about 10 square metes to dwell in. Not only he has no stimulation, he... More

Very cozy and beautiful place to visit! You can enjoy the animals very close and it's a very nice walk with small kids! Very clean place and very friendly staff. On the other hand, not much to choose for lunch except some fast food places. Better have lunch somewhere else. Metro station is very close and runs very good.

Easy to get to using the underground. Cable cart around the zoo is fun. You can get photos taken with some animals and the dolphin show is amazing. Great day out for the family.
