  • Really like this place. It is small, but actually getting to touch animals is nice. Funny guy with the snakes!  more »
  • I was, I saw, stroked:) Very good place, workers with hearts to animals know the history of each of them. Worth seeing, it is worth listening to, it is worth to take on the hands of these exotic creatures:)

  • Great tiny little aqua zoo to visit. Kind of a must see if you're in the area. All kinds of species from the area are displayed. Staff is really kind and helpful. We enjoyed spending time out in the garden seeing all kinds of reptiles up close. Would've surely given 5 stars if the entrance were wheelchair friendly. I got in with some help from the very hospitable owners though.
  • Excellent aquarium and reptile area. They do amazing work here with rescues, that alone made me and my friend want to go in. Once we got there, the staff are so welcoming and chatty that we knew we made the right choice. Brilliant knowledge from staff, and signs in many languages with information about each creature if you would prefer not to ask questions. Could not recommend this place enough, and don't forget to leave a donation for the animals while you are there!
