I don't normally like zoos but this place had large enclosures and they used the space well. The animals all seemed happy and well cared for. Lots of information about each animal. Good eating facilities and great value for money.

It's been on my to do list a long time, finally made it. This is a very unusual way to travel, suspended above a river and city streets, but it is very sensible actually.
