Hello! Are the Zoo and Botanical Garden separate? I'd love to see the Botanical Garden, but I'm not interested in the zoo, and it would be great if I could pay for one and not the other.

We spent the whole day in the zoo as it is HUGE and we still didn't get to do everything! It's well worth it though!
