This amazing private collection is not on the 5 or 7 point trap of packaged tourists , so expect a degree of peace and calm . The collection is in the hands of the third generation and they are certainly not adding to the collection let alone '' breeding and conservation '' touted by many hopelessly outdated tourist pamphlets ....
