The property is not very big but there is enough to do and see. The shows are entertaining and snake encounter was educational and fun to watch.

What a fantastic and magical day visiting and feeding giraffes and seeing other wild rescued animals and having the chance to get up close to feed and stroke them. A great experience for all ages.
