Being a person who don't like Zoos. I can recommend this Zoo to all. The animals are not all caged up and it is like they are in thier natural environment. So do visit. Great entrance price.

Family with a 3 year old child. We enjoyed the day and our toddler had a great time. But as an adult I felt sorry for a lot of the animals as the enclosures were very small (tiger, snow leopard, elephants) I’d still recommend as...More

This was well worth the money but unfortunately as it was very warm, not many animals were out where we can see them. Most animals were hiding under the shade but the whole zoo itself was very enjoyable.
