National Zoological Gardens of Sri Lanka Reviews
Not the best experience. Animals seemed to be well maintained. Layout was a bit confusing. The butterfly garden was very limited and not as advertised. Foreigners are overcharged at the entrance (Lkr ... more »
動物の数は多いが日本で見られる動物ばかり。また、英語の説明文が少なく何を見ているかよくわからない。暇でやることがないならオススメ。 more »There are many animals, but only animals are found in Japan. Also, i don't know what i'm looking at because there are few explanations in English. I recommend it if there is nothing to do in free time.
The place has improved since my last visit. But I do hope many animals were not caged and had more space to run about. They don't have a proper map. There is one in near the front gate. That's it. Unless you take a photograph, it has no use when you go inside. May be they should provide a small map printed on the back of the ticket or something. However, it's a good place to take your kids, let them enjoy and learn something. There is a restaurant on site and play area for kids right beside it. You can also bring your own food. They have benches setup and water taps nearby. Garbage bins were located in many places for convenience.
One of the beautiful places I've ever seen.Every mammal, to bird, to fish you see here puts everything to perspective how the nature has gifted us all it's wonders.To witness all life other than ourselves face to face, as seen at the comfort of our homes,is really mind boggling.From Bengali tigers to giraffes 15ft tall.But observing the animals in the zoo also sheds a light on how animals are caged to entertain and the sub par living conditions they have to put up with, far from their original homes makes a melancholic experience. So in the end there may be a conflict of emotions when visiting here, but will leave every one who threads this zoo really enlightened.
