this zoo has undergone major changes in the past years, from offering all kind of species going to less species and giving the animals more space. The garden is always very well maintained and people working in the zoo are very dedicated to their jobs....More

This zoo is just amazing. I loved how the animals were taken care of. The zoo is home to a big variety of species and has several buildings and statues with historical value. The gardens are lovely too. Free Wi-Fi inside.

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.
