Good food, Average Service.

We visited the safari during the month of May. Instead of taking our car, we took the bus for the safari. The buses have huge windows and single seated chairs, so every body has a window seat! the animas roam around freely and one can look at them up close, of course from behind the glass window of one's vehicle!...

what a place!! Indeed its beautiful and so well spread across. Open animals to see n appreciate the nature. Must recommend to take the inside bus service as ur own car can get few scratches due monkeys and other animals jumping on it. Good food court and big splash pad for kids to cool off. We enjoyed so much.

We visited with our grandson on a rainy day. We were delighted with our trip . The animals looked like they were well taken care of and comfortable as it was us who were caged. We were very impressed with the shows and thought that it was well worth the admission price. The presentation deserves our support as they attempt... More
