  • A cozy zoo. We had, however, been looking forward to seeing the dolphins that they advertised on the website, but they didn't have to come in and see. Besides that it was a really nice experience.

  • Very nice zoo, well kept and big. A lot of interesting animals. My young children loved it. There is also a beautiful playing area for children.  more »

  • Great place to visit with loads of animals there. I spent about 3 hours there but I reckon you could spent longer. Bits of it were under development but still good to visit. Maybe bring your own food and drink in with you as fairly expensive food there. But there are loads of picnic area's to sit. Not really any shows which would have been nice but still good.
  • Now this is how a zoo should look and feel like. You can see that the animals are not just captive...tools for making money. And there are some very impressive examples of how much people can care about animals. I very much recommend visiting it. Congratulations to the employers!
