“What an uplifting experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2012

The monkeys are so cute and it's so nice to see how they interact with one another and the other animals. Along our walk, we met someone that works there and she has the most wonderful personality, you can see the monkeys know her and love her. It's so nice to go somewhere where you can see that someone that spends alot of time there actually loves the animals. I've been to places before and seen a lack of love or even caring for the animals. I will go back again soon.

“Needs TLC”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2012

Plenty of work needs to done. I have been here a good fews times now and it has slowly gone down hill. It needs a little bit of TLC to bring it back to it's orginal state. Still a good day out for the whole family
