If you are travelling here I would definately skip this "safari." The parking is free and isn't too far to walk. Entrance fees are really high for the quality. If you are paying in American dollars the cost is approx. $18/per adult. The park itself...More

Perfect for a day out. Lovely looking at the animals. You have to be fit though as it's a bit of a trek around the zoo.
