This animal park is highly recommended to visit especially you have young kids. All of the staff was very friendly and the park was well maintained. The bus tour was exciting and seeing the animals up close was great!

My kids had so kixh fun there, well we all did! The guide was amazing and all the animals were great and friendly. It wasn't super expensive and neither was the food you fed the animals. We would definitely recommend it and will go back.
