  • We had a birthday party in the Tree Tops room by the giraffes. Our zoo educator was very informative and helpful. She brought several animals to show and discuss. The kids loved it, as well as the adults. We brought sandwiches and cupcakes. Everything was so convenient!! I would highly recommend this to anyone interested.
  • Overall experience is awesome. Tickets are little pricey but still we can visit this one. The setup is quite nice, particularly the wooden bridge which gives access to giraffe viewpoint are wonderful. Lion viewpoint is quite adventurous, the lion is indeed roaring and rocking here.
