Visited Feb 2013 with young children, expensive to get in, although under twos go free! Don't be fooled by the free bus either, what they fail to tell you (until you are there!) is the buses are every hour on the hour going but you can't get leave till 4pm! Unless you pay for a taxi! We needed two so that was another 30 euros!
The layout is good but not great for prams or wheelchairs. The animals they have are great and you get a lot closer then you would in English zoos! We really wanted to see the hippos but they weren't out, no warning of this before we paid!
The staff in the cafe/burger bars are just RUDE! The woman that served us was unbelievable! We bought some beers and one tasted off, probably just the first one off the pump we thought! So asked to change it, she laughed at us and said no! She wouldn't exchange it or refund it, walking away to serve others while I was still talking to her. Even now, I still can't believe how rude and unprofessional she was! I will also point out its not cheap either 3.50 a half pint!
Don't waste your money, really not worth it!

I was there in January 2013, and I was disappointed.
The entry price this month is a bit lower (21 EUR instead of 24), but it doesn't worth that, I'll tell you why.
1. We arrived there in the morning, and were hoping to to see the parrot and eagle shows. The woman on the entrance was very sleepy and not smiling, just taking money and tickets. I don't like unfriendly service.
2. It was windy, so on the showtime they just told sorry, but because of the weather there won't be parrot show. By the way, on the place of the show before the time of the show it was noisy - they are making renovation.
3. Part of the park (almost half) is closed because they are making some renovations (isn't it a reason to sell tickets for HALF price?}.
4. It's easy to see, that animals are in quite poor conditions. And the glass through which we see some animals was very dirty. :(
5. The eagle show was not full, also because of the wind..
After we went out of the park, on the entrance appeared a paper NO SHOWS TODAY (interesting, in the morning there was no such paper) and then we asked the woman about refund, because it's just not fair to pay such price for half of the park and 1 not full show, but she only pointed us to the rules to the point NO REFUND and didn't say a word.

So, may be it's a good place to visit in a good calm weather, and when the whole park will be renovated. Now it looks old, poor and absolutely not client-oriented. It was very pity to see in what conditions animals are...
Though, there are some nice places to walk and animals are still cute.

The jungle park provides a great day out, with good shows with the birds of prey and parrots.
The only negative is that it is built on a hillside, which woukd make it difficult for the less well abled

Even the price is a bit high, and the prices at the cafes and restaurants are really expencive the park is nice and shady even on a sunny and hot day. A bit of a maze tho, you really get to walk around. Nice idea not to put nets on the cages, but windows instead. Easier to get photos (just if you miss the reflections).

The prices... there are some discounts on the entry fee, so keep your eyes open. Good plus on the bus transfer, which is free. There is 3 cafes / restaurants. First at the entry is nice and located right by the free flight arena. Moderate price, thinking of a cafe in a tourist attraction.
The second bar is by the Lizards, and I must say, pizza for 18 euros is a bit of a too much. The restaurant at the parrot show arena is ok, "normal" food, with a bit under 10 euros a plate.

Beer can cost up to 8 euros, but that is for 1 litre. Half a litre is 4 euros.

The free flight show is definately a must, the birds are unbelivably and beautiful. Loro show attracts the kids, since they can feed them during the show...

What a great park. Plenty to see and do and a free bus ride there too. Birds of Prey Show was amazing. Recommend anyone to go from families to older people.
