  • Walk through the park to reach the well maintained and open enclosures.. animals seemed to be cared for and provided . Large roomy cages and plus the climate is more or less cold-ish. So a must walk on a day when u got no outings !
  • Great zoo, enclosures are well designed and made to be more like the animals habitat. best place to spend a day!
  • One of best Zoological park I have ever visit its clean and full of beautiful Flowers
  • well maintained and safe for animal. its natural zoo
  • A unique zoo/sanctuary where animals have been tried to live in the actual habitat. Unique combination of flora and fauna
