  • Not too much to say. We stop here on our way down from the top of the mountain. Definitely an attraction for a family, but as a couple is was ok. Nothing wrong with it just ok.

  • Sadly, as it was very hot, animals were sheltering from the heat, so had limited views . the zoo is built on the hillside so quite tiring going from one level to next with minimal flat areas.

  • Amazing maintenance of animal enclosures! Made to mimic their respective natural habitats. Also, the zoo's location on the hill keeps the animals away from city crowd and sounds. Well done!! All animals in good health
  • Take the W bus route if reliant on public transport or walking. The site offers promise for creatures associated with the Alpine area but there's a lot of walking uphill. On a hot day most of the animals hide/retire to their pairs though the walk through the vulture sanctuary brings you up and close to some very large birds. Go on a cooler day if you decide to visit.
