Very well planned in multiple walking trails. By the way this zoo Park is free, it is incredible. Local authority is well maintaining the park. As common to other zoos, at this season some of the cages are empty or hard to find animal in it. It is advised to bring your lunch with you as there is a only one restaurant out there. There are plenty of tables in the park, we enjoyed our time there. It takes about 3-4 hours to enjoyed the park , but you can spend whole day there.
Fantastic family day out. Free to enter but worth paying small fee for Amazon section. Cafe , gift shop, toilets.. frequent picnic areas with drinking water. Huge natural enclosures for most exhibits. Seems well run. Recommended
A great free zoo. Don't come expecting all the rough edges (or paths!) to have been smoothed out. Do come expecting a good selection of animals well looked after and making your own path around the large grounds.
This zoo is FREE, and there are tons of animals in a wide-spread habitat. It's a very nice place to go and have lunch, and admire the animals. You can eat at the restaurant -- which is amazing -- or pack a lunch and eat at one of the many picnic tables, which I hadn't known about before. I ended up paying 3 euro to go in the rainforest enclosure and it was definitely worth it; it was very immersive, and some of the animals were so close they had to specify you couldn't touch them.
Nice park. We started with the bears (ours). That route was boring, almost no animals were spotted. Except for the Asian lion and the 2 Syrian bears we encountered along the route. Please take this route too, because as you progress it is getting more lively. The other way around will get you in a boring route.
