“Park or Zoo?”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Don't expect to enter a large zoo with gorilla's, lions and elephants. At first this parc shows a modest face, untill you lose the fast pace of life and simply enjoy a stroll, meeting up with animals here and there, mingling with lots of water based animals and fowl. Sometimes simple things of life or just a jolly walk and intimate encounters with lovely animals and this parc can garantuee just that. Even better when you have young children of grandchildren to take with you. On one of the lakes you can choose a small boat and peddle around. Should keep you busy for at least 2,5 to 3 hours.

“Wonderful for the family”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

The animals were all in very natural enclosures, and we were able to walk around at a very relaxed pace. Some of the species were new to us,and we enjoyed the very natural feel to the entire Zoo. Recommended for families and nature lovers.

“Nice small zoo”
Reviewed May 22, 2011

Nice zoo, not so big but enough to see and do for at least half a day. Not so many large animals, but a lot of different smaller ones. Especially the area where you can walk in the same area as the apes do, is very nice.

Thank Oaktri
