Very clean and entertaining little zoo. Plenty to see and do and the walk isn't full of hills. They have a few air conditioned buildings along the path that will give you a break from the weather.

I would agree with all, 2 hours is a good amount of time. Can you walk through the whole thing in an hour, yes. But to stop and watch, play on the slides and stuff, maybe have a drink on the deck... Two hours plus. If you... More
