This zoo is focused on conservation and the continuation of endangered species. Learn about its efforts by participating in an educational program or joining in a recreational activity on site. You can see more than 2,000 animals, including 157 species of birds. The zoo also offers a number of entertaining exhibits, including a dolphin show.

Ita good zoo but regarding the covid 19 and sice some shows and parts are off because of covid maybe the price should be a bit down. About the rest evrything was nice and nice even the cable. Thank u. more »
I love this zoo. A lot of different animals including koala, lions, elephants, dolphins, tropical reptiles and birds. Great dolphin show and free flying bird show. Free of charge cable car going above the entire zoo. Wonderful
Wide variety of animals, loads to see. Nice open space to walk through and also for the animals. Not too crowded, did not have to wait long/at all for most animals. Dolphin show was fantastic, a must see. Reasonably priced tickets. Would highly recommend for anyone.
