  • It's passing by chance before I'm arrested for the first time! Very nice Zoo, in a green nature, with animals in bright colors! You can clearly see the work that is done each day to meet the needs of all these species. even if I find some 'small' pen, I have noticed a certain well-being in animals! Congratulations to all the team of the zoo and soon!

  • A good surprise Took the grandchildren there on a rainy/cloudy summer morning. Turns out they absolutely loved it and so did I. The birdcage is quite spectacular, and there are lots for everyone to see and do. Only four stars as some of the larger animals - big cats etc - appeared to be on their own in their enclosures.
  • A small zoo which takes just over two hours. The parrots were fascinated and being able to stand in the enclosure to see the very up close. We were lucky enough to be there to watch a baby giraffe being born and then eventually take its first few steps.
  • A fantastic zoo , our teenage kids loved it , friendly staff who can speak English , lots to see , hands on feeding the parakeets , none of the animals seemed distressed . Get there early as parking spaces can be hard to find .
  • Lovely small zoo, free roaming squirrel monkey was a nice surprise! Great for little ones 1 and 4 year old. Pleasant and well looked after, and easy to walk around. Good value for money.
  • Not too pricey, good selection of animals. Easy layout to walk around.
