  • The zoo was humane and kind to their animals. Almost of the animals were rescued from the country. A great place to appreciate domestic species! Tapirs looked cute, but they were jerks, they turned around and spray your direction
  • Awesome zoo! Love how beautiful the setting is and that they are into education and promoting protection. Perfect size for a zoo and loaded with animals from the country in a very nice and respectful setting. The way all zoo's should be. I pity the jaguar sent to Milwaukee!
  • Fantastic little zoo. The animals are close, well kept and a joy to see. Also the way the park is set up is very natural, one feels like walking in a jungle trail. Through and through a beautiful experience.
  • Excellent zoo to see many wild animals. Just make sure to bring bug sprays as you will be in the jungle, along with these animals.
  • Great little zoo, definitely worth a stop. Food in the cafe was great was too!
