Very lovely small zoo. Incredible views from many spots throughout the zoo. They have done a very nice job landscaping and creating enclosures in a tight space. Very inexpensive as well.

Enjoyed - spent 2 hours and went around twice. Really cute lion cubs. Entrance is cheap and so is the food but a long drive there and back. Spent over $50 going there and back. Probably should have skipped for that reason alone.
