Very normal zoo, highly rated and priced. They lack the diversity in animal types. I basically expected more.

Great place to visit!! Never too crowded, clean, well organized, friendly volunteers...love this place. They are actively involved in preserving and reviving endangered species through their research and various programs. If you can afford it, definitely book one of the private caravans or tours.
