A small scam (but still scam no matter of the size) at the entrance. They charged us for the useless "radio guide" as they took our admission money. Then after we realised they had charged us for this and said we don't need it, they...More

The visit can be made with your own car or by taking one of the attractions'own buses. Plenty of animals. Plan ahead if you want to take the bus, as there is a limited number of buses, and they get full quickly.

We used the feeding (esa) bus, which was a great idea. It was cold outside, but on the bus we didn't really feel it. We got grass and meat for feeding buffaloes and lions. The park is not big, honestly I expected to see a...More
