Great day out for all the family. Great experience to get so close to beautiful exotic animals. Would definitely recommend.

We liked it very much. You could see a lot and we also loved the interaction in the little bird house with the cups.

All shows were very good. The enclosures are clean and the plants are very nice. Definitely worth a visit.

A dream for the whole family...we were there for the second time and it won't be the last time
