The simple zoo has a nice beach and the staff are approachable to give insight into the animals. The entrance fee is quite reasonable if a local buys the tickets.

It's a ok Zoo. But given the amount of biodiversity in this region of the world it's pretty thin. It's not expensive but it's lacking all things considered.
