A side trip that is nice to experience. Good collection of wild life animals that kids will truly enjoy. Nothing grand or fancy but this is worth visiting.

We were the first tour of the day and the animals seem to have just waken up but they seemed well fed and clean. Most cages have more than one animal in it but they looked like they co-habit well.

This place is listed as an attraction, but it is also an accommodation. I spent here two nights just because I wanted to have time to interact with the animals. The place is not very big, yet I find that it had plenty to see....More
