Greetings Classy People,

The national zoological park was launched in the ’70s, situated between Rabat and Temera. It is a place to spend an entire day, introduces animals and reptiles from different parts of Africa, many food stands, and a shop for souvenirs.
Indoor and outdoor museums are an additional blast to the zoo, so don’t hesitate to book a zoo taxi to experience the entire adventure.
