We have been to many zoos all over. This is now one of our most favorite zoos we have ever visited. The variety of animals was incredible. We had the best time! I highly recommend this zoo!

10.00 entrance fee. Free parking. Nice variety of animals. Especially enjoyed watching the elephants bathe, the rhinos frolic and the baby orangutan play with a tshirt!! The daddy orangutan would kiss through the glass......so sweet!
