One of the best zoo I have ever been. It is like in fairy tale. You can see flamingos and room with butterflies, what is unusual. Worth to visit!

By the time you must be wondering what is the price? It is of approximately 56 euros for a senior and a child. Expensive, right! Your first impression is to not go there, but think! The animals in this zoo are fantastic, including hippopotamus, lions,...More

De ringstaartmaki's leven in een open domein maar kunnen niet aangeraakt worden. Is immers met alle dieren zo die in open pleinen leven. De dieren moeten in alle rust kunnen leven.
