Best part was the train visit. If you are unlucky, you are sitting on the wrong side of the train. ;-)

This Zoo is quite relaxing, I don't feel I have exploited the Animal Kingdom as much as other Zoos I have visited. It's quite Zen. You are caged more than they.

Normally I don't like to see animals in cages but here the animals are free to roam in herds over hundreds of acres. I really enjoyed riding the "train" through the various habitats and seeing some huge animals up close like bears, buffalo, caribou and...More

Thank you for your feedback! Indeed, all the money received is reinvested in the care, food and animal habitats of our Zoo. It's a pleasure to see you again.

This "zoo" (it's more like a conservation area) is absolutely stunning. I usually tear through zoos in a couple of hours. I stayed 4+ hours here. If you do one thing in the region, do the zoo.
