We love the Zoo. Plan your trip around the animals' feeding time and be prepared for a lookout of walking. The place is massive. ????????????????

Ein Zoo, der so einige europäische Zoos leicht übertrumpft. Liebevoll angelegt, sauber und gepflegt. Sehr nettes Personal. Einige Tiere haben wenig Platz, aber man sieht: daran wird etwas getan. Top!
