Went for a trip here as a break from the cities and towns (great as many if them are) and wasn't sure what to expect. Some animal parks can be depressing places with unhappy caged animals. However, this place exceeded expectations as many of the...More

Had a couple of looks around here while staying in the hotel, once in the evening and again the next day after checking out. Considering entry was free while staying in the hotel, it would be unfair not to give it 5/5. The gardens themselves...More

If you are looking for a not too long activity with educational benefits, go to this bird zoo. You will find many different species to enjoy. Some of the birds are rescued from illegal traders.

I was very disappointed and felt that it was quite shabby and dirty. Some of the aviary didn’t seem clean and tidy. We were staying in the hotel so didn’t have to pay entry. I would not want to have paid for this attraction.

Very interesting place for children 5-9 years. Many birds from all places in the world. 3 times a day they have amazing bird flying performance, each time different birds
