That's place is a gem. Reasonably priced, lush greenery all around and very healthy looking lively animals. There's lots of interaction with the smaller animals (why doesn't this happen in the UK) and loads for the kids to see.

I usually don't like zoo's...it's sad to see the animals penned up in little cages and pacing back and forth-not here. The place has a family run, cozy feel, like the people really care, the grounds are well kept and clean and the animals look...More
