  • Wow - this is a hidden treasure! I cannot begin to explain the amount of unusual animals you will see when visiting. Being 1 meter from a lion, tiger or leopard is pretty impressive. The monkeys...  more »

  • Plenty of primates as well as many other animals. Animals seem to be well looked after and the enclosures and spacious and more then adequate. However at times I was not sure what I was looking at, maybe number all the cages and make a pamphlet available, at a small fee I'm sure this would help raise some funds.
  • This is 1 of the most exclusive zoo parks I've been to. It's clean, it structured well and it's got more interesting animals than both the JHB & PTA zoo! I am defiantly going back again with a larger crowd now. Taking a picture with the baby Tiger was the best part of it all.
  • What a nice gem and our guide could answer all our questions and was very patient with my children
  • Fantastic place to take the family!!! Animals very well looked after. Definitely worth the visit.
  • I was at mystic monkeys and had a horrible experience. The tour started off just fine with walk seeing the monkey's However as i went to play with lion cubs the lady was exceptionally difficult, was told to go see penguins which I had zero intrest in doing, and only got to the lion cubs once they were asleep. Disappointed doesn't even begin to describe how I felt especially since the cibs were awake when I was directed to the penguins. 😡😠
