I am not a massive fan of Zoos so I was quite skeptical about visiting this one but I had heard and seen quite good reports. I was really suprised at how green and lush the cages were and in what good condition the animals...More

Had a great visit to the center. The behind the scenes tour is worth the money. Dan our guide did a great job in explaining and giving us the opportunity to touch and feed the many animals. Highly recommend to family and all

We had a very nice tour with a guide. He knew a lot about the animals. We would recommend this zoo. It takes around two hours to visit. You can also rent a lodge with breakfast with entrance to the zoo. Nanette from the Netherlands.

The "regular" fee is $10 US to go onto the grounds but that only gets you to some general areas where you look at the animals in the distance in cages or through thick mesh. Instead we paid $70 USD per person to go inside... More
