What to expect

Visitors of all ages enjoy their time in the zoological garden and wildlife conservation facility, but children especially like it.

Families are permitted to bring their food and drink to the zoological garden, however, there are cafés and restaurants there as well.

The zoo is separated into bioclimatic zones and natural habitats, which include humid rainforests, deserts, and coastlines. Among the zoo new-borns as of fall 2015 are gorillas, penguins, and lion cubs. It has won more than 65 prizes and it is award-winning in various categories. The Zoo wants to preserve the Endangered Species Act.
