It is rather run down and the environments don't look very comfortable or up to date. Everything from food to gift shop was too pricey.

Keep in mind that's it's locally owned and they're doing the best they can. Saw many animals I've never seen before. The monkeys were active and "posed" for the camera. They're used to being fed peanuts (which you can buy there). Needs updating. Had a...More
