They have enclosed areas - not like Zoo but big areas fenced for Tiger, Lion and other animals. The feeling of being really in Wild is missing. But for kids and beginners this is a nice outing. The safari is short just 30 Minutes.

Worth a visit if you have kids. There is a van trip to Lion and Tiger habitat. You could get a view of Lion and tigers in the open space. It is little far from the town though
