My kids loved the Dinodome and everything surrounding this zoo. Easy parking, small cafe dining options, and even ice cream available. The animals all appeared to be well cared for - major points!

This is a very nice and beautiful zoo divided in 4 different zones and themes such as the Amazone and the Savane. Don't look for tigers or elephants as they not really fit in these themes. The walking paths and the views are beautiful. The...More

We visited the Zoo back in the days when it was brand new in 2005 and saw it had great potential. We went back now but were a bit disappointed. A not unimportant part of the animals were hard to see because of the abundant...More
