Most of the Zoo was under construction or renovation and still they charged the high season amount. Many animals we couldn't see at all! The best were elephants and the play area near the entrance.

This zoo is good value. We visited with 2 adults & 4 children. We had a lovely day strolling around the zoo. There was some upgrade work being done so we didnt get to see some of the animals but we still enjoyed the day.
