Nestled in a lush subtropical forest with lakes and ponds, the zoo features mammals, reptiles, and birds, including one of the largest collections of parrots and venomous snakes in Europe. See large and rare white lions, mandrills (the largest monkeys in the world), and flying foxes, which rank among the largest bats on the globe.

  • Very sad visit. The animals are living in jails. Insufficient socialisation. Many of them are apathetic. Never ever again. Close this place.  more »
  • The zoo is poor. Tickets are very expensive. It takes a lot of effort to be considered good. There will have to be directions with animal numbers.  more »

  • Nice zoo. Not to big and circle route aroi d the zoo. 4 hours is more than enough to see everything at slow pace. Lots of birds to see here. There is a bird show at times 12:00 / 14:00 / 16:00. Recommended if you like performing birds. Will come back to see the rhino and sunny bears. Thanks
  • Definitely the best zoo I've ever been to. The animals all seem very well cared for and their environments are all clean. The highlight for me was the experience with the baby tiger 🐯🧡
