You will absolutely love every exhibit and think you are in Africa or the swamps of the South when you visit! There are so many fine exhibits, you'll go home and wonder why your area zoo isn't like this. Just when you never hear much...More

It's not ranked number 1 in the world for nothing. Animals galore, friendly educated staff. I suggest going mid Winter. Winter there are a lot less people and zoo keepers have more time to talk and explain. It's worth every penny.
