The animals are definitely not treated as well as they should. Watching the bears begging for popcorn or small portions of food was just pathetic. Certainly they are not eating as well as they should be. Other reviewers have detailed the rest of the zoo....More

Nice day out, especially on the sunny day. Some parts of the zoo were undergoing renovation so have not seen all of it. Think that animals are well looked after.

We were overwhelmed by the great experience. It is a very nice park with a huge amount of interesting animals that are good to spot. We could feed the tigers with a chicken and they even have one of the five ligers alive
