    Good, it was clean and peaceful not much visitor's though, However only few games were functioning and the price of entry was good but can be better.

    We frequent the zoo as I love the animals and enjoy walking around. Sometimes it's more clean than other times, but the animals usually remain inadequately cared for, which is depressing. Also the cages are far away and bulky, so it's hard to see the more interesting animals, not to mention taking pictures. The zoo itself doesn't offer many other activites to do unless you go during a peak time when rides and food stalls are open. Overall, the zoo isn't anything too wild and exciting. But if you live locally and have never been, may as well give it a try! I'm sure the animals will enjoy the extra attention!

    Getting through the entrance can be difficult given the amount of security. But otherwise a pleasant experience. It can be quite hot and there weren't very many places to get water.

    Benghazi Zoo is a place where families go there for relaxing and entertaining and for spending a good time, but this Zoo need a lot of attention from municipal authorities in Benghazi City, to arrange for rehabilitation of this Zoo to meet the standards of International municipality, but now it is below the quality requirement related to the animals inside the Zoo and requires facilities.
