You think that you are in the Bush but still you are in the citycentre. Very Nice places for the animals espacially on the attick. Children are allowed to feel a big spider on their hands and a snack on their neck. Cool show with birds outside.

If you're interested in reptiles and small animals and you are close by, you should really have a look. It's a small place, but they manage to make it cosy instead of a quick run-through. Kids will have a better time than mom and dad.

We visited here not expecting too much but were really wonderfully surprised by a very friendly team of people and some happy animals. One of the ladies that came and introduced herself and told us about the attraction explained it was a family business and that the animals are essentially pets. We met the very friendly skunk who couldn't get... More

Although I was warned I was still surprised when I got here. You don't expect a place like this where it's situated. Once we got inside, we were very much surprised. They have all sorts of animals you don't normally see in a zoo. At first I thought it was just the indoor part but outdoors they also have a... More

Put a spider on your hand, and a snake around your neck. Indoors, there's a lot of reptiles and spiders, outdoors the zoo has a few larger animals as well. Small zoo, good for a few hours of animal watching. Skip the bird show, as it is like any other, but worse.
