Great layout and very family orientated. Animals are all well looked after and even though animals are not meant to be in cages, these cages are huge and made to be as natural as possible. Keep up...

Good zoo, well cared for animals , pleasant surroundings. Close up views of 🦁 lions . And crocodiles. Some funfair rides for little ones. Just very crowded on weekends, so avoid then I’d say.

The zoo is in great shape with a huge variety of animals which each have very informative information boards. New parking garage is a real bonus with plenty of covered parking.
