  • I just went only to the safari park, but it was really a fun. You can enjoy one hour tour in your own car (or Zoologico's micro bus ). Don't forget to buy food bought on the street just before the entrance ( I thought that we could also buy it inside, but I couldn't find). Feeding seemed to give you much more fun there !
  • It's not very well-designed, as you have to go back through roads to get to other animals. However, it's a fair zoo. It's ok. Food is reasonably priced. The highlights are the hippos, giraffes and seals :)
  • Every time good sunday program. But many animals are outview.
  • Classic ZOO set-up but well maintained, clean and friendly staff.
  • Very nice green area. Most of the animal cages looks small and old. Has a few option for food (crowded and not comfortable). Several ice cream stands along the park. Not a must visit, but nice place to go with small kids!
