Loved being able to feed the giraffes and the ability to see the animals up close. Disliked the high prices for basics such as water, sodas and snacks.

There is so much to see! It is very inexpensive and you are so much closer to the animals than any Canadian or American... More

I have always loved zoos and have visited many around the US. This zoo... I will definitely visit again. Besides being full of interesting exhibits, unusual animals, and delicious (made to order) concessions.The grounds are magnificent with blooming trees, beautiful flowers and breathtaking vistas of the ravines and mountains (all natural). Additionally, the staff could not be more helpful and... More

I have to say this zoo is much better than the ones in California, much larger and of coarse much more to see and do, the best part of the zoo had to be hands down the safari road trip which you get to encounter giraffes and feed them carrots right of your hand!, my kids had a blast doing... More

This was not on the agenda to visit, but after reading the positive reviews, we decided to do go. As the title says, this was paradise. If you're looking to escape the city noise and enjoy the tropics, this is the place. It was so peaceful. This was truly a great zoo. If you enter the enclosed monkey habitat, be... More
