  • Of course, generally feeding the penguins have seen too much cat shows and horse riding experience is nice, but. Please heal the people take a look at the cat-like than those who do not. In the front row if possible.

  • Many kinds of animals, but various events and shows is very appealing and fun. Low-altitude flight at the recommendation of personal flight is less than 10 cm from the top of the head, such as Eagles, owls and falcons, was the best. Also, when going to interesting cat and sheep shows, Animal Kingdom, again look.

  • When you say GW before, arrived without opening already parking a half was taken over. We come to see shoebill Zoo had decided for the time being, follow the map. It is that kind of togetherness is just around the corner as it can also touch the animals was surprised in the building is divided into every creature, first entered the building in the fence, not because you feel. In bats or collective or hardened above the birds at their feet or, feels really close to dangerous animals other than that. Also, the food at lunchtime for all sorts of animals do experience. I think is usually sheep or the Andean Condor feeding excitement-packed, good tasting food flies close to the Condor is overkill and wings that will be in the 3-meter and give their. In addition, Sheepdog show very enjoyable and interesting. Lift and free tractor ride the cat bus and there is a pay to park and walk around a vast area of difficult people can use. The shoebill, seen for the first time, I was impressed. I think you can eat other things or places, so you can enjoy all day with my family.
