  • I really liked it here. It was a nice trip. I liked that you could drive to the African animals. The giraffes were the best part of our trip (2 dollars a leaf to feed them) but they were all close anyways. It was a lot of downhill walking and I could see this being a problem for wheel chairs. We had a double stroller, however, and it did just fine. I love all of the statues and the food was good. It took us about 5 hours to walk it (with small children) .
  • What a wonderful zoo! Great animal exhibits and knowledgeable staff. Feeding the giraffes was amazing. It is $8 for 5 pieces of lettuce, but the pieces are big so they can be ripped into a couple pieces. Wonderful food in the cafe not overpriced for the quality and quantity. A great day!
