Go on a camel safari at the largest camel reserve in Europe, look into the bright eyes of the curious lemurs from Madagascar or get your photo taken with a friendly giraffe.

    2nd visit here. Not as good as before but a good place to visit. Be prepared though, even if you have a printed ticket or an online booking everyone, absolutely everyone still has to queue up to get another ticket to go in and it takes ages. Also the maps are very confusing and it's a very, very big place. So come prepared for walking. On the positive side the animals look well cared for. There are plenty of big restaurants and they are very reasonable prices for food and drink. There ate lots and lots of toilet facilities and they are all spotlessly clean. If you have never been it's well worth a visit.
