A great place to closely see a variety of predators. Guide was well knowledgable and friendly. Food at the Wetlands is great, good value for money though the staff can be a little sloppy.

There is a small entrance fee for adults. Children under 12 are free, but you have to pay separately for each activity like petting cubs or cheetahs
