  • We had a free transfer from the hotel- this gave us just 2.5 hours in the zoo. This doesn't sound like much time but it was plenty of time! Now about the transfer... it was horrific! The driver was on...  more »

  • Had a lovely day here. Room for improvement but still an enjoyable day. Some amazing birds there. A few more animals needed. Great break from the beach.
  • A nice way to spend a few hours if you're fed up with lying on the beach (I am after 5 minutes). It seems to be a well-run small zoo with lots of things to keep kids amused, and our grandson loved it. Only 4 stars because €10 seems very expensive to feed a few leaves to a giraffe.
  • Utterly amazing!! We got to feed a 15 week old tiger and the giraffes. Best day out and can't recommend enough!! Lots to see. Lots of birds though which became a bit boring. It's worth the visit just for the giraffe experience. Unfortunately they have retired the baby tiger as he's getting a bit too big now for bottle feeding.
  • It is a lovely place to walk around. Lots of animals to look at. Although some of the cages seem a bit on the small side. There is no picnic area and there is not many shaded areas to stand or sit.
  • Very nice zoo, you can feed giraffes and birds for extra payment. Parrot show is entertaining.
