The landscape is amazing: flora and animals. I visited with my daughter and grand daughter and they were very pleased and surprised to see all the variety of animals and the different types of flora. We will return again in the future. it was a lovely experience.

While I can appreciate the cost of up keep is expensive I though that €60 was a bit steep for a family of 2 adults and 2 children aged 11 & 12. There are no family tickets available. There are mainly birds on display, monkeys and some other animals. Facilities are excellent, food, drink and W.C. But again expensive! It's... More

This is a lovely little attraction with a charm all of its own. There are no large animals but there's a great variety of smaller animals and birds and you feel like you're right in amongst them. There are plenty of docile animals that kiddies can pet and/or feed, lots of secluded shaded spots to shelter from the heat of... More

This zoo is only small so you shouldn't visit if you're expecting to see lions, tigers etc. There are many different types of birds, some monkeys and a few larger mammals, including a petting zoo. I am a fan of all animals, no matter how small, so I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. The zoo itself is nice and clean, and... More

A nice shaded walk around but was fairly disapointed with the amount of animals. It was mostly birds with some monkeys and a petting farm. Fairly expensive compared to other zoos we have been to and would not return

The zoo is not very exciting, mainly birds and small animals but still it is a nice idea for a trip. We however decided to go there buy bus, feft to early as the driver didn't speak English and couldn't help, so a long walk spoiled the joys of the visit and to make things even worse we ended up...

This was a lovely little zoo and we really enjoyed our visit. My son was expecting some Lions, tigers, elephants and giraffes but they didn't have any. the monkeys of all types and the little park they had soon made up for that :) definitely worth a visit :)
