Quick serviced nice food in a green environment. Service was attentive and friendly. The setting of this restaurant is superb, in the midst of nature & so close to town.

The sanctuary is right in the middle of the city so you don't have to go far to see it. The only issue I really had was that there were very few animals so see. But the story behind each animal is very heart warming

There were not alot of animals to see because they release many back into the wild when they have been rehabilitated. It was good to leaencourage that there is a place where the animal welfare is priority over making them a zoo spectacle. The sanctuary...More

The nature sanctuary is a great getaway in town for both adults and kids; checking out animals and surroundings but also a nice place for a lunch or dinner as a family group where the possibility for the children to play around.
