  • The zoo is smaller than the publicity suggests. We did it in 1 h 30... We followed the signs called for at the zoo and we had the feeling to see always the same animals. In short, disappointed... For shows it is recommended to stand at least 1 h 30 before the beginning...

  • Beautiful Zoo. Very clean, very nice, very educational. Respect for animals (except Wolf a bit cramped?)

  • This zoo is a great place to discover or rediscover our soul d ' child and keep in l ' spirit that we must protect all animals... with the time change our friends the apes were warm early better come early in the morning to take advantage of all the places and shows quietly! a Rapture... the setting sun in the eyes of the lion? the grunt of the Panther and the mini monkeys etc...

  • 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!
