  • You do a tour of a small path where are you flora and local fauna (manatees, crocodiles, deer) and some that other foreign wildlife. Then you get a ride in a truck trailer so you can see outdoors from impalas, giraffes to Rhino and an elephant. Leaving you in a recreational place to spend a day with the family with playground, a place to see snakes and another where you can observe local birds. If you like wildlife and want to enjoy a good family day this place is for you...
