The Zoo Itself

The seals originate from America while the dolphins come from Africa. As a visitor, you will be able to see them interacting below and above the water.
Other attractions include the Explorer’s Creek where there is a bird house, a water play area and walk through feeding area! At the Gorilla Island, you will find a family of Gorillas from Africa. The Gorillas share the area with some Monkeys and live in peace because they are herbivorous
One of the oldest areas of the Zoo is known as the terrace where lions, pandas, fruit bats, flamingoes, and keas are housed. It is the first place that allows a visitor who visits during daytime to view how the animals behave at night time!
