  • It's a very well designed park. It's also very big to walk on foot. So I recommend you to take a car tour. There are nice, small vehicles to rent. You can see many animals especially too many kind of goats. It's perfect spot for family.
  • Animals are treated badly, if you care about animals, I would not recommend visiting and supporting this place. There was rubbish everywhere including in the enclosures. Parents were encouraging children to bang on the glass of the enclosures and feed the animals junk food. I didn't see a single zoo keeper around so there was no one to stop them
