  • Animals in large cages some you can walk through. Bad news is that it is up the side of a mountain
  • 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.
  • 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.
