  • Murdering 2 beautiful big cats just because one suicidal maniac decides to go into their enclosure 2 die!!!! You are supposed to protect these beautiful animals not kill them. That imbecile decided he wanted to die you should have do everything to protect the lions not him. Disgraceful you should be brought to justice for doing this you are a disgrace and these beautiful animals deserved better 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
  • The view is stunning and the park is ok.But in general its not enough space at all for the animals. Cages are to small or the area not wide enough. How it could be on a little mountain.

  • There weren't many animals, don't go during the winter
