  • We had great fun here. Absolutely loads to see and do. You can walk, take a golf cart or drive around. We left the car in the car park and hired a golf cart, such was great fun. Lots of work taking place to improve the zoo. Some parts look a bit neglected, but that only added to the charm. We went on a Tuesday and we had parts of the zoo to ourselves. The animals largely looked happy and well cared for.
  • Great place for family vacation. I strongly recommend use the golf cart at inside of the zoo. This will give much better and exciting experience than using own car.
  • Within 5 minutes of arriving and seeing the gibbons in their open area, I predicted this would be my best zoo visit ever. The rest did not disappoint. The gibbons swinging around in the trees, feeding deers, ostriches, rhinos, elephants and a random wild pig were just some of many exceptional experiences. A whole day can easily be spent here.
  • Whilst it was a nice family day out the neglect and abuse of some of the animals was apparent particularly during the 2nd half of the experience. What could be a decent establishment sort of turns into a freakshow towards the end geared towards teasing animals. In some places you feel like he is a decent, caring, zoo and other places you feel like the animals are purely there for entertaining humans. The elephants, big cats and bears seemed the most distressed.
  • A really great Zoo and experience with lots of photo and feeding opportunities. You come really close to the animals. You can hire a golf cart or go around with your own car. It is possible to walk and experience some of the park. But some kind of vehicle is preferred.
