Love going to the snake park over the weekends. Superb animals kept in a humane manner. Extremely clean and inviting. I can't visit there without popping into the kiosk. The snacks and food is very tasty an fresh. An awesome outing for the family.

The park is amazing! So clean and neat and such a wide variety of wildlife. Especially loved seeing the big cats- lions, tigers and leopard. A must see for all animal lovers. Kids will also love this activity.

We arrived at 12 just in time for the snake and seal show- not that impressive. However its surprisingly big complex with many animals - lions, tigers, jaguars and many many snakes. Well worth a visit especially if you have young children.
