The first review I read suggested this zoo wasn't good value for the entrance fee. At €16 for an adult (children half) this was excellent value and I'd have been happy paying that for our 18 month old son who's entry was free. Having been on 4 safaris I have low expectations of zoos but this was a great place to spend the afternoon and wish we'd had longer.
The zoo itself is split into 2 parks separated by a footbridge. Park 1 first takes you through a farmland area which allows you to get close to the animals before entering the various worldwide zones. As an adult you really appreciate the thought that's gone into the layout of the zoo and the tigers had a particularly large area to roam around. You actually walk through the aviaries rather than past cages of birds and there's plans for further expansion, the benefit of not being a city zoo. If you're a big cat fan you won't be disappointed with the tigers and panthers plus there are cheetahs and lions in park 2.
Park 2 has the cats, giraffes and zebras from Africa but a real highlight was the lemurs. You enter a zone where they're loose and you can walk amongst them which was unforgettable.
There were 32 animals to look at (not including farmland) so €16 actually seemed very reasonable when you add in the extras and food policy described below.
We arrived early afternoon and ate before seeing the animals. Unlike other attractions, you're not obliged to buy food and drink there and they have more than ample picnic tables for those having brought their own lunch. Around the food area they had bouncy castles for children of various ages.
All in all great value and I'd ignore any review that says otherwise. Don't miss this zoo if you're in the area.
