  • awesome zoo! been to many over the years and this one always stands out. great vantage points and amazing animals. the tigers are the most likely to be out of view, but what can you do. the snow leopards are usually up on the hill so the best place to see them is actually on the back side path by the northern trail. obviously timing is a huge factor so just do your due diligence to avoid coming right after feeding times and you wont be disappointed.
  • We enjoy visiting Zoos when we travel. This zoo is a very nice place to visit. The animals have room to move about and live in a more natural setting for them. It is nicely laid out and honestly it is worth a visit if you enjoy Zoos. It was about s 10 minute Uber ride from downtown. I’ve included a few pictures from our day. Definitely plan on spending at least 5 hours there as a minimum.
