Enough to keep every age occupied. From zip lines to kayak to feeding birds and giraffes. Train ride short but fun for younger kids.

Not a large zoo, but one with a large variety of large and small animals alike. Goor food at the restaurant and the photos taken by staff at the entrance turned out great.
