Manila Zoo Reviews
Better then it's rumor! May 06, 2008
I have to say that before my trip I had heard a lot of crab about Manila ZOO. Which is also why I did not go there during my first stay in Manila. But this time I had to come up with something new and I was also a bit courious as to wheater the rumors were true.
No doubt about it - this is not Singapore ZOO, but it's not as bad as the rumor tells either. I've seen crappier zoo's before.
I admit...the conditions of some of the animals could be better, the oxes could have cleaner soroundings and the elephant should have a mate, but in general the conditions were good and most animals seem to be doing good. Especially the tigers were very active when I was there, and that is definately a good sign.
Besides tigers, elephants, and oxes - the zoo has a big collection of birds, crocodiles, a hipo and other interesting animals in a very beautyfull park. In short - it's a lot better then it's rumor.
