  • The place was decayed and there was no information sheet for all the animals. The smaller bear was in a very small cage and was glued in a disturbed manner. Awful we didn't find in the area.

  • Great place. This Hotel complex, Zoo, water park, shop. As a family business in the second generation. Very clean, lots of animals, all done somehow with the mind. Really liked. Arrived early, opened specially for us. As entertainment for children in the area.
