This is one of the best place to relax.. We meet giraffes. You can walk to where the giraffes are. they are so many. You can also picnic there, take your drink/food and enjoy the evening sundowner.. We had the best time ever.

The landscape has been very nicely converted to a park/picnic environment with some animals like giraffes and zebras roaming about freely. It's a good escape away from the city yet reasonable close by
