Most felines are asleep.. Be prepared that tigers, lions and other felines are either asleep or invisible. Great outdoor activities for kids, interactive playing with funny goats. Nice birds, fish, reptiles etc.

As the title suggests really. There were some lovely animals to see in the Zoo especially the Gorillas and Orangutans. However, some animals were in overly cramped spaces and it was very sad to see

Zoo was fine, many of the enclosures didn't have animals visible. Some places were under construction. Highlights were the hatching chicks and the petting zoo

I was with my kids there its realy nice and very exciting for the kids to see the animals close. The price inside is little high so take your drinks and food with yourself. Nice and good place.

The zoo has an extensive collection of animals. Unfortunately we did not see them all. Some were probably hiding from the heat of the summer sun. I felt sad seeing the animals in small enclosures. At least they were not behind bars. But I'm sure...More

Good value for the €10 entry price but here were some issues a bit disappointing. Some of the enclosures seemed a bit small for the animals and some of them were on their own - could do with pairs or pals. A nice day out...More
