Nothing to rave about really. Once you have been it's enough. No need to return.Rather visit ethnic African curio stalls at various sites.

We took the Kids to the theme park during school holidays. Lots of rides to choose from. Lots to do for the whole family. You need to arrive early as there’s lots to do and one can quickly run out of time.
