  • It was okay. Hard to get there with public transportation. Also, some of the animals weren’t there. However it was not crowded at all even tho it was a Saturday.

  • A very nice zoo with many species. The exhibits are a bit run down in places (reptile house for one). The dolphin show was very entertaining and the handlers did an excellent job demonstrating how dolphins are able to use their skills to swim in the ocean. It can get hot in the afternoon so stick to the shade when possible.
  • Great, educational experience for kids and grownups. The dolphins and lemurs looked happy and enjoyed the attention from the visitors. All other animals, especially large carnivores, looked depressed. The park is vast. It takes hours to go through everything. Make sure to have water, a hat and sunscreen with you before you start.
