Not worth the trip at all. #1 Worst zoo my family and I have ever been to. The Oryx appeared to be in an enclosure completely alone, as a herd animal it looked very lonely. All of the animals looked bored out of their minds, especially the tigers and Black Leopard (who was kept in an enclosure no bigger than a small room. Some of the animals listed on the site, weren't even there, including the African Leopard. I have never seen such a HORRIBLE, CRUEL enclosure for tigers in my life. The were in a small-medium size fenced in area of dry dirt. That's it. There was no green in sight, no plants, no toys, no climbing structures, no big rocks to lay on, no pools (tigers love water), nothing. They were kept in a dry dirt square. The fence was surrounded by an electric fence on the inside, so all they did was pace back and forth, keeping their distance from the fence. The staff was very nice but that does nothing to make up for the terrible enclosures. I hope that they change the enclosures to more appropriate, natural versions. We came because based on the pictures, it looked very open for the animals and natural. I've never been more wrong. Not coming back and not recommending it to anyone. I truly pity those animals. I will try to add photos soon.
On the website it says "The habitats are designed to mimic the animal's natural environment." Ha! I don't think so.
