Nice few hours out

Pretty good. Went here as a couple and was a very nice walk to see all the animas. They also had an inside area with bats and reptiles. It isn't the best zoo I have ever been to... read more

The Zoo Was a good experience, my 2 year old enjoyed it . The zoo seems a bit outdated as there were some cages empty and the others you really had to be looking in the cage for the animal as most were far up in the trees.

There are a number of interesting animals: some favourites like the giraffes, some rare (such as black rhino, which the zoo have been breeding), some very unusual I hadn't seen elsewhere or actually heard of. The zoo is laid out as a large park, with paths that wander around between buildings that house the various animals. If you get the... More

We visited the zoo on Christmas day, since I had visitors in Germany and this is one of the few things you can do on Christmas day. It was definitely an excellent trip. The animals were all out and the crowds were not too big, thanks to the holiday. The layout of the zoo is a little confusing and you... More

Got there early so kids were treated to most animals eating breakfast. Giraffe house is fantastic to get up close. Although sad to see how small sleeping quarters are. Overall great zoo ;)

... but there is still something to do. The rhinos and giraffes and the pavians seem to be in the very same place then in my childhood about 35 years ago. Others habitats have highly improved. But the penguins urgently need a new home and the zoo is collecting money for it.

I read the reviews so I was expecting few animals. I had a good surprise though. I had the chance to see bears, monkeys, lion, seals, turtles, crocodiles, bats and many other animals. It's not too expensive and well structured.

This zoo needs a lot of TLC because all the enclosures are overgrown with weeds and look very untidy, now I no the difference between overgrown and natural habitat and this is overgrown. You couldn't see half the animals because of it. There are no staff walking around so you can ask them questions. We come from Australia, actually south... More

I read several reviews before going to the zoo with my boyfriend on vacation, which made me apprehensive. However, the zoo was fantastic!! Yes there were some animals missing, but the weather was lovely, the price was reasonable (especially in comparison to American zoos), and all the animals were lively and interactive! We took tons of pictures and really enjoyed... More
