Absolutely LOVE this place! The knowledgeable staff helped us locate some of the more shy animals. We saw so many incredible animals and creatures that my daughter keeps asking to go back every week!

The zoo is great to visit with a variety of animals in display. There could be more species added but overall the visit was lots of fun, especially for children. The 'cafe' could be better. There is a really small cafe with exorbitant prices (but I guess that should be expected)
