The snakes have lots of room especially the ones in open walled pen, fascinating to know they can't get out, the chimps were good and had a lot of room as did the vulchers, the cats were in a vey small area the leopard was pacing around a lot and the lions there were 5 or 6 in a small area. I don't know way they had vervets and baboons in there as they can be seen in great numbers in the wild.

This small place shows quite a few snakes which is very interesting and great for the kids. The animal part was a bit disappointing with animals in cages. The caracal were clearly stressed. Another review mentions tiger and cheetah but these are not here.

If you like wild animals in dirty confined spaces, this is the place to visit. Crowded. Rather pay a visit to the Pretoria Zoological Gardens - price is the same but the latter compares with the best international Zoo's.
