The best part about this zoo is that the animals are not kept in tiny cages they have huge fields to Rome free. The safari is also a great the animals eat right out of your hand. I would recommend this to anyone.

Emus come right up to the bus on the safari. There are other birds roaming freely but they don't tend to come right up to the guests......
