We took our grandchildren here . A thoroughly entertaining and interesting day albeit it feels quite "dated". Fairly expensive but cost divided by time spent there is proportionately reasonable.

I find it remarkable that on the tiger tour they specifically say 'tigers love to swim in water' but they didn't have any water? So sad. The animals don't look happy at all. I mean it's a zoo and zoos are not okay, but sometimes...More
