  • There was a great atmosphere of an old-style animal sanctuary about this place where the animals were able to roam free and interact with visitors. The guides were well-informed and spoke passionately about their conservation efforts particularly for certain endangered species. It's unfortunate that places like this rely on tourism to keep afloat rather than on funding supplied by the government, given the good work these sanctuaries do.
  • Great wildlife experience, we got up close to many native animals, and was able to pat and feed them. The kids loved and had a great time. The keepers are very knowledgeable gave fantastic talks about the animals which allowed people to interact closely. A good value day out
