This was a great experience. This zoo is so unique built into the mountainside. Three adults went on this trip without kids and still had a blast. There are some good interactive exhibits like the giraffes and everything just sort of blended with the natural environment. Great daytime activity for everyone. Wear sunscreen!

This small, intimate zoo is set on a mountainside. You are close to the animals and can feed the giraffes by hand. Great for kids of all ages.

My son was 9 years old at the time and loved the experience. Not your typical zoo and located off a cliff. Loved the interaction with the giraffes. Be careful of the heat in the summer.

It was a good experience,they are remodeling everything to make it better and i cant wait to see when it is all done, you get to feed the giraffes and birds and chickens which was fun it was a bit to windy to ride the ski lift but definantly will try it next time we go, its a great place for a fun time.

This is one of the best zoos I have seen! We got there at 9:00 a.m. on the dot and were privileged to stand right next to the giraffes as they were let out for the day. You can pet them & feed them lettuce!

The keepers were available everywhere for questions about the animals which was so very much fun.
