  • What an awesome day for our first time as a family. We arrived about 930am and went straight to the safari tour we where on the first 10am bus. Definitely worth getting there early and doing that first at it takes about 45 mins. With young kids you have limited time with happy babies. The drum music was awesome great interactive activity for our girls cant wait to use our zoo membership more!
  • A great place to take the family and enjoy some of natures greatest animals. Be sure to go as early as possible as it can get very crowded on weekends or public holidays. The best part is taking the safari bus, which allows you to get up and close with some of the animals. Fun for all ages
  • Great experience. By the end you really have a feeling you saw a lot. Free for children during school holidays. Reasonable price for parents. About 75 for 2 adults. Winner with kids especially the ones that loved animals.
  • It is a great zoo, the self travel area is not that big for adults, and unfortunately due to heat, not many animals can been seen. (It will be considered big for family with kids since there are lots of playground) But the open area is great, especially you are sitting in Jeep instead of the normal giraffe car, you can get very close to the animals, and the lady is very very passionate about her career and share so many information of the animals (I only remember she has sore throat that day and she is passionate about rhino) Food is pricy there, (ice cream can be up to 5 dollars), but all the earning is going to contribute to protect the animals
  • I love the fact that there is a safari trip (included in your entrance ticket) where you get to see so many different animals closely in the open range. The zoo is big and there's cafes, toilets and water stations everywhere. It's perfect for families especially for little kids. Highly recommended.
