This place was amazing! The tour guides were amazing. We learned a lot about all the animals there, the different plants/tropical trees and the aboriginals. It was the best time! I highly recommend visiting this place.

Clean, healthy animals. Very well maintained property and great information. We were not after a big buffet lunch so we got a sandwich for a very reasonable price. Friendly staff. Overall a great experience
