The animals on the whole looked well cared for and you can get very close to the animals which is nice. But there are some downsides some of the enclosures are very... More

We visited the zoo on a Sunday and it was quite full with people, we were expecting to have a great time but unfortunately all our good mood was taken away when we saw the animals in their cages. The conditions some of the animals are kept in are very poor and I am quite sure they are not respecting... More

The zoo is located in a big natural park with lots of places for leisure activities. Tip: it's ok to feed some of the animals and it's lots of fun.

The zoo is located inside a park, easily reachable by car. There a lot of parking places and from there you can walk until the entrance. It is quite sizeable and really nice structured. The animals seemed happy and well treated, I didn't see this in many zoos. The signals and explanations may be lacking a bit but it really... More

We've been here in a cold november day but still we had a great time. The park in the forest is quite big, the animals look healthy and have enough space. If you travel with small children we recomend the free carts.

The conditions for the animals are great, they look healthy and act like they are. Most of them have offspring so they feel at home here. It is a great place to visit on a sunny day.
