The place is good for family outings - a bit pricey I thought but we had fun. Alot to see - snakes, birds, different animals (the favorite Big 5). The facilities was food, enough entertainment for the whole family.

The animal park is a lovely day out for the little ones. Good variety on offer and there are live shows where more details on snakes is given and the brave souls can touch the non-venomous snakes. It's easy to get around with a stroller...More
