It's a zoo, but not ordinary zoo. Every animal is very close to you. You can touch and pet most of animals. Also you can even feed bears and lions. You can also enjoy unusual food such as alligator burger, kangaroo burger.

I would give this a rating of 0 or -1 if I could. I recommend that you do not visit this "zoo", it is more of a private animal collection where the animals are treated as pets more than wild animals. Most animals are displayed...More
