This zoo is located in the city, around it are some amazing gardens (my friend had her wedding shoot thier) There's about 6 entry booths so they are prepared for crouds however they were never really needed each time we went there. You can get great rates if your with a military friend as they support thier troops! As you enter the Zoo there are a few tracks you can take to start your visit. There are also buses that go around the zoo, i didnt get one because i wanted to save money, but this was a mistake as the Zoo is quite spread out and the walking tracks are quite Hilly. Some exzibits were very nice like the elephants and the gorillas, but the less popular animals were in basic cages and habitats. I know the drill and i brought my own lunch but my friends were caught out and had to pay about $9 for a plain sandwhich at the cafe. It's an okay place to visit but dont stress if you dont make it.
