All of your favorites are here - monkeys, hippos, tigers, elephants and bears (oh my!). Hand-feed their large reticulated giraffe herd, and experience animals up-close, like never before.

“Great ZOO”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

You will get some exercise walking this zoo. Enjoyable for sure, the giraffe area is fun for kids. they do a great job of interaction with the animals. The primate area is however a bit depressing as they do not seem to be happy but that is understandable as I would not be overly happy being caged in.

Incredible that a full zoo is right there in the mountains. The staff was very informative and it's an easy walk around the zoo. We enjoyed it very much. Thanks!

“Nice Zoo with a view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

Went to the Zoo, good place they got there.
Went on the sky lift to the top, no animals up there but great views.
Saw plenty of animals, set out in zones for Africa, America's etc.
Lions feeding was good, loads of Giraffes, few Elephants etc.
Similar but smaller than the Sydney Zoo.

“Wonderful Zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

This zoo is unique in that it is built into the mountain, thus there are a lot of hills to climb. The Giraffe exhibit is extraordinary and the zoo has a great selection of animals. Most are in large enclosures.
