A very nice Zoo. The animals are close and no big fences will bother you while watching the animals. There are a lot of playgrounds, one of them is a big dinosaur themed indoor playground. Outside is a nice dinosaur-merry-go-round.

Really pretty zoo. Nice enclosures, no overpopulation. Everything is really well taken care of. There is explanation in English so also great for tourists. One of the more beautiful zoos I know. Also a great play area with ropes for children (and adults if they dare)

Good resort to spend a couple of hours and there's enough for kids to enjoy like playgrounds and a dino-dome. No small cages and a half hour bird show hosted by a genuine bird lover. Absolutely worth a visit.

My boyfriend and I attended last thursday and it was like having our own zoo, it was so quiet. the variety of animals is excellent and they all have lovely good size enclosures, the animals all seemed so relaxed and happy. it doesnt seem like the zoo was trying to squeeze in as many animals as possible like some places....

We have been to this park several times, and will go back more when the summer comes. Very pleasant and good park with great diversity. Food is not all that good, but that is not the main goal of the stay.

One of the nicest zoos I've been to ....and that's a lot ! No cages, just natural habitats. Nice variety, take a whole day to enjoy it properly. If you have little ones relax and have some lunch at the cafe while the children enjoy the playground. There are a couple of shows but we didn't see them.

Nice day out with the family. Animals seem to be in pretty good health, habitats are well maintained. It's a day-filling walk if you want to see the whole park. Prices for food and drinks are very reasonable.
