We spent a lot longer here than we'd expected. The zoo is built on the side of a hill, and set in woodland. Highlights are gorillas, snow leopard, fishing cat and underwater viewing areas for penguins, seals and manatees. There are also some habitat areas....More

Great zoo. It was very quiet due to the time of year, made it feel like we had our own private zoo. Very well organised with good facilities. The dolphin show was fantastic. The animals are cared about and well looked after. Would definitely recommend.

Zoo is quite big, yet the number of animals is not huge which is good for animals as it result in a great space for them. The biggest upside is dolphinarium with great dolphin show!

First I was shocked to see the queue, ok, it was a Sunday, but it was September, so not high season maybe, but maybe a lovely day. Lucky us. Anyway, some of the queues take cards and some don't, the ones that don't are much...More

We arrived late in the day and had to rush before the zoo closed, but what we saw was absolutely worth the time. Good layout and easy to navigate. Mostly flat to help with walking. Get an earlier start and make a day of it.

It's rather far away. No way to walk from the train station to the zoo as you would waist the whole morning on the way. The best thing to do is to take tram number 5, whose final stop is right in front of the zoo entrance... More
