The zoo is one of the smaller ones I visited, but the zoo grounds are gorgeous and well kept. A very natural looking environment. Animals live in a nice space and all look taken care of. Fun day! Easy walk!

Lovely zoo, not huge in size but very well set out. Prices for the café over the top but that's normal I guess for most zoos.
