We have one of the cleanest and beautiful zoos in the South! A huge variety of animals, a petting zoo for the kids, as well as a train that gives you a great overview of the zoo! Highly recommend it!

The zoo is smaller but it has great landscaping and a good selection of animals. The staff are very friendly. The cafe has good food with fair prices. The cost to enter the zoo is very low. This is a must visit!
