  • Originally, the park was created to preserve and breed crocodiles from Madagascar, but then gradually turned into a zoo with a variety of different animals. These are iguanas, Seychelles and Madagascar turtles, a large number of insect species. In addition, in the park you can see the palm tree "Princess" - a species that was on the verge of extinction, and in the museum - stuffed extinct dodo birds, products from ebony and many other interesting exhibits.

  • Very nice visit to this beautiful animal park. Being able to see so close to the giant turtles is exceptional! The crocodiles were impressive as well as the hundreds of insects! Mention to our guide who was very interesting, passionate about it and could answer all our questions.

  • Very lush and natural greenery at the entrance of the park itself. What I like is that they seem to have made the park round the lush nature - not the other way round : in other words, nature looks quite untouched. The nature walk makes one feel that you are really in a jungle. The children garden is well thought of, with birds and animals all around. The baby goats roaming free in the garden area are too cute. The animals and birds are interesting and the crocodiles are awesome. The only problem is reaching the park. Not enough indications around.
  • Not a big fan of zoos. This place offers a good experience. Animals are in freedom or in big enough cages. Children loved the farm, feeding the crocodiles and the giant turtles. Restaurant is nice too.
