If you want to visit The Little Zoo it`s important to arrive when the staff feed all the sweet animals. That is the best experience with this visit.

Went with my children aged 15, 12, 10 as well as my elderly parents. And we all had a wonderful time. This is not a large zoo. On the contrary. But they do have a surprisingly wonderful tropical house. Almost all the animals roam freely...More

In this zoo you get very close to the animals, there are feedings and showings throughout the day where you can even get to hold a snake and a lizard.

This is a hidden pearl, we spent two hours there with three kids, aged 5, 8 and 10, who all had a great time. We could have easily gone back the day after, if the kids could decide. Don't miss it!

Not your typical zoo. You get closer to the animals here. Consists mostly of animals confiscated by government, and adopted by the owners here. You can have birthdays for children here. I was in a birthday thing for mye niese.
