First time we have visited a Zoo abroad and I must confess it has been very pleasant. My son (10y) and my wife are both animal lovers and they really enjoyed this activity, away from all cultural and medieval cities as Florence, Lucca, Pistoia .......More

This zoo is the biggest zoo we have ever been to. The animals had large enclosures and were all well cared for. The zoo was so good we came twice. An experience we will never forget. So glad we found this zoo.

In my opinion, the space is large enough for a zoo. You can be close to some animals and you can feed the giraffes (with 0.20 cents). We didn't see all the animal because it was far too hot and perhaps they weren't in the...More
