Unfortunately the winter is not the best season to visit zoo's because most animals are in their holes or inside. Also in this zoo. But I think that in the summer it is great here. Gondwanaland is beautiful and the aquarium too.

This is I think this the best zoo I have ever visited. There are no cages and the animals live in their normal habitat, they have a lot of room and the parks are very interesting and they have a lot for kids

Animals looked content nice spaces and survival better than in wild. Good programmes. Visitors could be more respectful.

Great place with a large selection of animals for all the family. Great for an entire day out with friends and family. If you don’t mind be overrun with kids and large families, then it’s fine. The only downside is the lion who is on...More
