We loved this zoo. There was so much to see and all of the animals seemed very relaxed, mellow and happy. The gardens which are interspersed with with animals are also lovely. We went mid week in early October and were amazed how quiet and...More
Zoo closed too early, is my only complaint. We got there as they opened, and also closed them down... There was part of the zoo we didn't hey to see even. We had a great time and saw some great animals and learned so much!
