Really good day out. As being from the uk, our zoos are very un-interactive. Here you can throw chicken to croc's and watch them snap👍 great show put on by the trainers handling them. Very cheap for what it is. I'm 33 and loved it. Kids will go mental👍 lots of big cats that you can have your picture with.... More

Such a sad place to visit. The cages are so small there is nowhere near enough room for the animals. The crocodile enclosures were so small and the conditions were horrible. The worst part was during the elephant show we seen one of the staff that were riding the elephant repeatedly punch it in the side of the head. We... More

I can only take so much. For me..I love animals and outdoor stuff. I always seek out zoo's and def petting ones, where I actually get to... More

We visited the place on a Sunday morning. It was not crowded. The place was not well kept. Toilets were somewhat unexpectedly scary looking & obsolete :(( Animals were pathetically caged: pythons, monkeys, bunnies. A few skinny elephants were chained for rides & photo-taking. We went straight for a simple magic show, then an elephant show. The latter was not... More

Shocking; animals are kept in poor conditions, clearly no maintenance has been done, not very educational/informative for visitors and just shocking by any western standard

We went on a workday so it was really quiet. A lot of really interesting animals, but the zoo environment was a bit sad--they did better than many I've seen, but still, tigers pacing in small cages, four bears in a concrete enclosure, etc.
