  • Super super super! Beautiful zoo in a forest/ natural park setting. Very happy animals!
  • Well worth a visit, the Darwinuem is excellent and we are looking forward to the Polarium when it is finished. Prices are humane and the park-like grounds are wonderful.
  • All animals were well taken care of. They are fed well and kept healthy.
  • Perfect choice for a cloudy day in autumn - plan to stay there for 4 hours up to 1 day:)
  • Very nice place
