  • Who tolerates no jungle trip and fear, to come at his own expense. It's worth the 17km out privileges to stay hours here 1-2. Of course, everything for the package tourists is aligned, but many species.

  • The place is quite large, consisting of 2 travels; the first is a walk in the "jungle" that lasts about 25 minutes and the second is a route in the transport of the Zoo by the "Savannah" where you can see African animals and Asians (elephants, zebras, Rhinoceros, etc.). My recommendation is that you take clothes fresh and repellent against insects.

  • The place is very nice, clean and very well-tended animals, only part of the party somewhat deteriorated, but they were giving their maintenance. Between day can tour the Park, but you can spend the whole day there without problems of boredom. The canopy and the canopi are guys but great.
