We are currently doing renovations: May First 2017 we celebrated the 75 Anniversary of our national ZOO, during the past 6 years major changes are occurring on our grounds. For example becoming a member of the species 360 global zoological database for the exchange and improvement of animal husbandry in captivity, we are also working on our accreditation to become a member of the global zoological organization. Our goals and mission for the future are to make of our national zoo a great area with international standards, this all cannot be completed only on the government funding, that’s why they are giving every person that visits the zoo the chance to adopt an animal or even an entire project. Upon request, we can give you an hour long educational tour. We also incorporated a social part to the development, giving a helping hand in education for our youth in the hands of the juvenile detention center, people with limitations are also very important in the development of our national ZOO, please inform yourself before your arrival of the current state, and eventually contact us for a private tour, so that you can admire the essence of the beautiful work being done. tours, can be scheduled during the week from Monday true Friday from 10AM till 2PM. For more information on our development please visit our website and click on our master plan icon.

The zoo is ok, highlight was the very old lion at the entrance... He didn't look very happy though. The playground looked cute but you could fry an egg on the equipment, no shade provided and it gets extremely hot.More

The zoo is kept clean. Sometimes they have movies nights. Sometimes they have carnival style games for the kids to play. Lots of lights everywhere. Food stands and a play ground.
