  • Nice place to spend a family day, feel quite a shadow except for the part that isn't much tree. A lot of place for pic fuck.

  • We had visited this zoo in 2015. We have renewed the experience this 03/08/207 and we're a little disappointed. Apart from the new extension which is very beautiful, we found that zoo and particularly paved areas seriously lacked maintenance. Repeatedly the stroller was blocking or well they were feet in overflowing boxes, this could be dangerous. The place is nice with shaded areas.

  • It is part of the most beautiful zoo I visited. Yet it was a rainy day, but I do not regret! To visit and re visiting family.

  • My family and I were quite disappointed with our visit today. We feel that we paid much more than the experience was worth. First, over 1/3 of the zoo was closed for construction. Workers, power tools cutting and making noise, and animals relocated, we missed out on seeing many animals and were annoyed by distractions. Second, despite being a Friday in June, only one restaurant (the most expensive) was open to the public. All the many others were closed. We, like many others, were stuck and paid for a VERY expensive lunch, which wasn't even very tasty or nutritious. Overall, we feel deceived and a bit ripped off. It was our son's first zoo visit, and we feel a bit bitter for having paid so much for so little.
  • Cons: -smoking is allowed, even under the shows -more food stalls would be nice as they tend to get rather crowded Pros: -Very nice park, with a lot of shadowed places for both animals and visitors -Animals are treated with a lot of respect and care, which results in very healthy and playful animals. Would recommend to be in the area at least 2 days, as ALL the shows & animals are worth to see.
  • This place is really fantastic
  • Cool
