This is the second time I have been to this zoo ( 5 years apart) and they have continued to improve the enclosures for all the animals. Really good zoo

“I thought it is better then the Zoo of Antwerp”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

We had a reduced entrance fee thanks to Groupon. Yes, maybe some cages are a bit dirty and small (the gorillas didn't have much space) but the majority of the animals has plenty of room. There were a lot of animals: tigers, lions, wildebeests, giraffes, wolves and eagles. I loved the construction that you could walk in the cage of the wolves & bears (I didn't actually see any bears though). The restaurant food was okay, but it's better that you bring your own food with you. They're building a new building for the two restaurants. I also loved the nursery wit the little tiger cup and lion cup.

“Bad”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2011

It's a little zoo but with a lot of animals. The cages were too small for some animals and dirty! It felt bad when you saw the animals in this condition. Now the zoo is working on some new areas, the Savanne, something for the birds and a wood for bears. The restaurant was good, but not spectacular. It's not really a must-see, maybe in a few years when everything is new!
