This was a well designed place with lots of historic buildings mixed with the zoo animals. It is a very large area but accessible for all. A very family friendly place.

Hi! I believe is less quest on the week days the mornings especially. Be sure you'll have plenty of time as the park is large. On the rainy days you will not enjoy the animals as they are hiding. Have a lovely time!
