  • Really enjoyed our visit a good selection of animals plus with it being on the side of a hill it's a good bit of exercise too will definitely be returning later this year.
  • Very nice little zoo, it has a lot of endangered species.
  • Nice little zoo to visit with the kids. Some animals that I'd never before seen in any other zoo. Just make sure to leave you stroller in the car. As this zoo is situated on the side of a hill you'll be working up a sweat if you decide to take it.

  • Not the biggest zoo in the world, but I really enjoyed it. The peculiar hillside arrangement, the unusual variety of animals and especially the walk-in lemur enclosure, made it a great day out. It's quite unusual to see maned wolves, fossas, margays and wolverines too, even in the bigger zoos. Recommended.
