IT is like a Zoo where animal are grouped together. There is very few wildlife hapiness indicators. Also the entrance fee are quite excessive if you are not local

The animals are in enclosures except for the zebras and impalas. Great for young kods. The paths are well marked with free guides. There's a hotel within with a good restaurant for a chilled drink
