We had a blast at the zoo. All of the enclosures are clean and so are the animals. It is a very well maintained place. We all had a great time.

See all the above. I highly recommend getting the behind the scenes tour. You can book it by phone or email. Great zoo. Rent a scooter if you have walking issues.
