"For kids and adults alike! "

From giraffes to koalas and apes, this zoo is an ultimate paradise for those who love animals. It was one of our favorite zoo visits. We also enjoyed the sky safari which gave us a bird's eye view of the zoo. While there are bus tours available, it's better to take a walk around the premises.
