“Bigger is not always better”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

This zoo proves that. It may be small, but be prepared for a lot of walking. Beautiful grounds, cute or beautiful animals (depending on what you're looking at), and worth way more than the cost of admission.

“Excellent SMALL zoo”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

This is a small zoo that covers a large area. Be prepared to lots of walking. Keep your expectations in check. This zoo is not in the same league as Detroit, Toledo, Columbus et al. If you go with realistic expectations, you will definitely not be disappointed. It's highlight is Wild Africa. Do not miss it.

“Make Your Way Here”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

This zoo is wonderful. The animals are well cared for and visable. Yes it is 13.00 per adult but well worth it and parking is free, with a great place to picnic before entering the zoo.Not to be missed is Wild Africa, one can walk or take the tram to the Zari National Park. This area is not only great for the animals but the decor. You have been transported to Africa, from the luggage display, the village look, music, "camp sites", it is very well done. The main attraction here is the giraffe, of which you can feed and have great access. Do not miss the rest of the zoo though the red pandas are adorable and the prairie dogs can entertain for the longest time and the snow leopard and cheetah are beautiful.
