  • Unmissable place to ride, you take full eyes - the site is beautiful and the course is perfectly signposted and imagined to Miss nothing - it will take just to organize your walk depending on the time of the show with the animals in the water - you can stroll 1 hour or 3 hours without getting bored - novelties compared to our last visit and new projects in the works - a very lively zoo - the weather being good , many animals were visible, including the family of gorillas still very impressive, especially the dad, and the very touching baby hatched by his mother - we could talk about it for hours - a super goal to walk for children and adults - no problem for a parking place

  • Hands on experience for children and adults. A whole day spent there is a day well spent. Reasonably priced, free for disabled people. Lacks places to eat your picnic but that really is the only negative. Old and young enjoyed feeding the Giraffes and petting the Rhinos. What more can I say!
  • Visited a few years back, was possibly the best zoo experience I've had. Touched so many different animals and got close to some amazing creatures.
  • Such a massive zoo with lots of different animals to see. The best bit is feeding the giraffes popcorn when you first go in! A great experience.
  • It's the perfect place for all family! Many different animals and you can even touch them)
  • Best zoo I've ever visited! The only zoo where you can see the captivity is doing them no harm and they are happy in their environment!
