The safari experience was quite unique - open air travel through the park, across the different animal settlements - animals are just inches from you atimes. The zoo part was a bit anti-climatic though. With so much unused land area observed, it's possible further expansion may occur at some point.

It is a great park and well worth a visit. Unfortunately, we visited on the busiest day they had had, for a very long time - and so there was a long wait to get on the Safari Bus and to purchase drinks etc. Given we were also trying to be COVID safe, there were large gatherings at viewing spots as well, with little consideration given to social distancing. We will plan to visit another time when school has returned and during the week - to take full advantage of a great park. So good seeing animals in their natural habitat.

Awesome day!

My family and I had the best time! We were also fortunate enough on the safari bus to have the animals come SUPER close! Awesome experience. A lot of walking, so make sure to wear comfy shoes and pack a yummy picnic as there is a nice part in the zoo to sit and enjoy lunch.
