A pleasant program to take family with children. A well taken care zoo, clean and very agreeable. We made the train tour which took us around, and gave us a overall sight of the place.

I very much enjoyed this zoo. Lots of shaded areas so your not always in the sun. You can rent these bike things which is a great idea and lots of animals I had never seen before. Plus for an extra cost you can feed the giraffes.

Love this zoo! Lots of walking though- I walked 9-10 miles on the day I was there. The giraffe feeding experience is a must! Can't wait to visit again!
