Quick serviced nice food in a green environment. Service was attentive and friendly. The setting of this restaurant is superb, in the midst of nature & so close to town.

There were not alot of animals to see because they release many back into the wild when they have been rehabilitated. It was good to leaencourage that there is a place where the animal welfare is priority over making them a zoo spectacle. The sanctuary...More
