An average variety of animals but kids are sure to enjoy feeding the giraffes and the llamas. The new gorilla home is a great addition to the zoo.

Large enough for the island I guess. Lots of under construction work meant not seeing all the animals. Good for a couple of hours if you don't rush.

Is a place where we can learn more about animals and their natural habitat. Offers its visitors a cozy place where we can mingle with family or friends and we can take a souvenir
