  • Need it one time to see! An interesting Zoo, very many diverse animals, it seems, even more than in many other zoos. Children there will be very interesting! The entrance is a little expensive-€40. Recommend to everyone!

  • We visited the zoo in January 2018. There was no free bus as this only runs in the Spring and Summer. I have mixed views. The lion and tiger enclosures were very good, and you certainly got to see the...  more »

  • A beautiful green park, after the visit there were only positive impressions, visited several times and was never disappointed. At certain times several times a day, performances (shows) of various parrots and owls are held. You can safely come for the whole day, or combine with beach rest / bathing on the coast.
  • Great little zoo. Had a huge range of birds. Lots of other animals as well. Had a lovely few hours there.
  • An interesting little zoo. Lots to see and do, but it's a hot one today and most of the animals are staying cool in dark corners. I do feel though (in relation to other modern zoos I have seen) that the cages are far too small 😕.....
  • It's a good zoo, the cages maybe a little small, but they are clean & the animals don't seem to be in any distress, I did see one of the birds in the car park, I took a photo of it & showed it to one of the people that worked there 'oh they have wings, sometimes they do fly off, but most come back' was the reply. It's more a conservation zoo, animals that are rescued, they say all the money goes back into the animals & it's a good day out, go in the mornings though, that's when the animals aren't hiding from the sun!! Also, the free bus that takes you there is just outside the entrance to the car park where Coral Bay is, don't make the same mistake we did & wait for it in the car park
  • Wild animals shouldnt be in a cage, unless if is done because they are on the brink of extinction. You have a single elephant. Elephants love to live in groups and they are social animals. That's abuse.
