  • Pleasantly surprised by the Georgetown zoo. The entry price was not high at all. There are quite some different animals and most seem to have okay cages. The big cats and some animals that are there have been rescued. Still, the monkeys and most birds deserve some larger cages. I hope they can arrange that in the future.
  • This zoo is woeful and the animals are not being treated properly, many will do better if they were released into the wild. For a country with such rich wildlife, this is a shame. A revitalization project should be considered.
