“Excellent viewing”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

Very informative and great to see wildlife you probably wouldn't see if left to your own devices. You can walk, ski or bus around - so everyone is catered for.

“Caged Wild Animals”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

This is not suppose to be a zoo, but a wildlife preserve. Instead it seemed very zoo like. The animals were kept in large enclosures instead of in cages, but they were still on display and didn't seem to have much of a wild environment in which to roam. The tour, by bus, was fine, but was about twice as long as it needed to be, and the driver was not particularly informative about the animals.
