Thanks for these compliments. We expect to work more and more for the welfare of our animals years by years. Next year we will extend the zoo again and will offer a new big space for the lions :) for example. See you next year!

Plenty of animals to see and some enclosures are big unlike many zoos, particularly abroad. Small enough for children to wander around but not too big to get tired in. Arrows direct you around the different animals. Some of the habitats were very poorly kept....More

We went with our very young grandson and family, and thorough ly enjoyed it. The staff are knowledgable and friendly, and everything is very well laid out for visitors of all ages. Highly recommended.

We spent an enjoyable afternoon walking around this small zoo. It was very warm and a lot of the animals were asleep the first time we walked around. Not a problem, we just walked around again a little later! The kids loved being able to...More

Small, tidy , entertaining zoo. Off the beaten track (for a zoo) but well worth a visit. Had an enjoyable day out with the Grand kids. Worth every penny. Animals looked more than happy and were clean and healthy. We'll be back

so much better than the London Zoo where you actually feel ashamed of yourself for accepting the treatment of these poor animals (especially the very sad penguins). This zoo is more like a home for animals, they have an infinite amount of space to run...More

Great zoo, it's a nice size and we went around twice in around 4 hours seeing different things each time. A good selection of animals that you can get close too. Goats and lemurs were a big hit where you can go right into their...More

Wow what a place.... we got there just after opening and spent two hours wandering around the animals before doing lunch and then doing it all again. The boys loved it and being allowed in with the lemurs was amazing. Can't believe how friendly they...More

Very nice zoo with lions, tigers and giraffes and even an ostrich as well as the standard zoo animals. We spent two and a half hours here but with young children you could easily spend 3-4 hours.
