Additionally, you get the pleasure of staying in the fully air-conditioned main building, viewing the animals through large panel windows, as well as enjoying indoor exhibits and enclosures. For a particularly memorable sight, head to the snake section: the colors and abundance of nature's slitheriest specimens creates quite a spectacle.

  • Very sad. I thought this would be a safe place for local endangered animals, but many are not at all native to the area. I wonder how these poor creatures got here? Surely it was extremely traumatic.....  more »
  • Animal are taken from their natural habitat and closed in small cages. Is that animal protection? Artificial lightning and day-night cycling for nocturnal animals disrupt theirs internal timekeeping.....  more »

  • Perfect place to spend the afternoon with the family and kids. Children as well as adults will surely enjoy the petting farm. Not to mention the wildlife center that exhibits a wide range of animal. The little cafe is great and prices are reasonable. The staff are welcoming.
  • Perfect place to spend the afternoon with the family and kids. Good experience with children. They have all domestic animals where you can feed them. Widlife collection is also good. They even have cheetah. Parks and botanical gardens. It was nice experience. The staff are welcoming.
