We had a great time at the Zoo. Driving around takes about 3hrs to see most of the exhibits but not rushing. Next time we will be going using the electric buggies and would recommend going this way if you have a family or small group. The animals appear to have great enclosures with lots of space to roam, not feeling trapped. They all look well taken care of. There’s plenty to look at and the information on available to learn digitally about the exhibits is handy. More QR codes with text sites or videos would be appreciated. Take the day and explore this awesome zoo.
Great zoo with plenty of things to see. Carts were good with room for only one car seat though and only 3 hours seems a bit short for the amount of attractions. Bikes with kid seats and trailers seem like the better option for families to have the full day. Decent food available and good gift shop.
