  • This zoo is very grass and beautifully laid out. You should definitely be present at feeding times, both for children and adults a great spectacle. A little tip for adults, there are evening tours with dinner in the zoo!!!

  • Really great Zoo. Something a little different. Very clean and lots of interesting places where the animals are kept. Much better than animals in a big field. Our 2 year old loved it and he was free to enter so it was a bonus.
  • This zoo is spacious and well-laid out. It creates a relaxing atmosphere. I did see an escaped cockroach in the house of insects, but I hope they have caught it by now.
