    Super busy on Sunday afternoon

    Reviewed 07 March 2017

    We didn't enjoy this Zoo at all as it was way overcrowded on Sunday afternoon. Very often it was simply impossible to even see the animals as a huge group of people was blocking the view. My kids were so fed up with it they didn't even want to stop and were ready to go home. Although the Zoo is free, for some exhibits (e.g. butterflies & snakes) you have to pay a little. I was also not too happy with some habitats as they didn't seem big enough for the animals. If at all, I would definitely recommend to visit this Zoo during a week or during the morning hours when there are not that many visitors there. This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.

    We’re sorry, but parents haven’t shared any tips about this place yet.
