Took our 3 grandchildren here in HOT weather. The shade was very nice! It is a beautiful magical place. The children enjoyed the displays of the African animals very much. We try to go,every year. It is a wonderful experience for all ages.

First time visitor here, but well worth spending an hour or two just wandering the gorgeous grounds. Lots of bronze African animals with interesting bamboo and wood stick houses. Ponds were beautiful and with lots of lily pads.

It’s a fabulously maintained tropical garden paradise w a lovely place to have lunch under the foliage, surrounded by butterflies. It’s an easy walk on a paved or graveled path. The flora and fauna are well labeled and the jungle show amidst the plants added...More
