  • Very good place to experience the animal world in a kind “free” environment. Everything was great! Glad we decided to visit.

  • Frida gave a very descriptive tour of the entire guided journey inside the zoo. Q&A was amazing. Extreme attention to detail. Thank you Frida. We will visit again soon.

  • Africam safari was such a wonderful experience! It was $850 pesos ($55 Canadian) for their tour plus entry tickets which was 1.5 hours where they drive you through all the animals and talk about the animals. It was an open roof concept and well worth the money! Then you would switch to a jeep for the lions and some other animals. Absolutely worth doing instead of the $350 pesos tickets to just drive through yourself. Half the park is drive through (either with your car or their tour), other half was a walk through the park on your own. Recommend going Monday Tuesday as that is the slowest days for them, less people which means better photos and better view of the animals. Pets: They do NOT allow pets but they do have an area for individual spaces for dogs so you can leave them there with food and water for the day. However, I do not know how many spaces there are so I do not know if they would run out of the individual spaces for dogs if it is a busy day. Highlights: - They had an area where you could feed the birds seeds on a stick, and they would all fly on your hand and stick to eat. - The butterfly 🦋 area, the butterflies would also fly on you frequently which was absolutely amazing. - They had a jeep built into the lions enclosure with a glass wall in between (front of jeep was in their enclosure and the wheel/seats/back of jeep was on the other side) you could take photos in the jeep while the lions were laying on the front of the jeep. It was really cool to see a lions face right in front of me through the glass wall. - The elephants were so amazing. They had 18 of them when we went. - You can pay for an experience of feeding the giraffes from the open concept car tour they had (we didn't do this, but saw it happen and it looked really fun, they would eat out of your hand, makes some great photo opportunities and close up experience with the giraffes). It was clean, well taken care of, and great people.
  • Great place to come with a family for fun. Children will be thrilled seeing all the animals up close. There are a lot to see, plan for several hours. Very fair prices in the gift shops, unlike the price gouging you typically see in such venues. The restaurant also provided good food and decent service. Overall a great experience.
