  • Was here with a friend one day with Sun rain about 20 degrees. The animals were birds o variable, don't think you're going to go on a hot day because the animals is that we tired then. Pay the entrance fee since included rides. You can bring food in, there are many places to have a picnic on the. It is also possible to buy different kinds of food. What I was impressed with was that the staff was hejig o happy. Then it was clean everywhere. Bins everywhere, which is great. Coming back.

  • The Park is very large and well maintained. Very clean everywhere. Many different species of animals to see, from the Meerkats and seals to Elephants and Lions. The only disappointment was that the wolves would not prove. Walked past their compound several times, in the brilliant Sun, in the rain and when it was shadow, but they looked not out even though we stayed behind and Scout for over 30 minutes. I felt like the perimeter fence was empty. But the other animals were more active. The area is very hilly, so wear proper footwear for you.

  • Was there with my girlfriend a couple of days now on the last vacation week. Absolutely top. For the "Reef burger" on the first day. It was quite a bit of fun element that they put in the chili cheese nuggets in the vegetarian burger. The second day was the "Shark Grill" outside the Park area. Many cute animals, however, we saw no wolves in spite of the fact that we went there to the pendant 4 times. But many other cute common and unusual animals we saw. The admission price to the Park 2 adults 2 days was ok had gotten to be a bit cheaper. Many "pokestops" If you like to play Pokémon and battla in gym. Large parking lot, a lot of places. 80 SEK/day do you say is a fair price.

  • It's an amazing place where animals have ample space to roam and seemed to be treated very well. Pay attention to how they position their food for example.. The price of the entry ticket may seem high but it is worth every SEK! They have a good variety of animals and things to see. They have great activities scheduled throughout the day. Next time I would like to visit and stay at their hotel.
  • The safari gondola and dolphin show should not be missed and make this an excellent day out. Of course it can get crowded, especially around holidays, but that is to be expected. I also love the Gorilla and Chimp enclosures. If they are outside, one can watch them for ages...
  • Had an amazing time there with my Girlfriend.. Loads of walking but its all worth it when you know that the animals have plenty of roaming space. All the show are really informative and entertaining. 10/10 will walk again.
  • Fantastic park with loads of animals to see. Humongous park that will keep you and your children busy for a few days. Must see if you're in area.
  • Great zoo to walk in, lots of space and nice staff. The dolphin show is great as well as the rides, I highly recommend the cable car.
