Once upon a time this was the 2nd best zoo in the world . But now this place is terrible with minimum facilities you can ever imagine in a place. Seriously it needs tremendous improvements.

Huge, good collection of animals. Interactions with animals; feeding, rides, photos,... Marvelous animal museum, don't miss it. Needs more cleanliness, golf cars, trained personnel, guides, and recreational activities.
