Had an absolutely great time despite the rain. The animals are so well cared for, keep up the good work. Will definitely be back to see the progress. The guide that took us on the tour, Anja was very good and informative.

It was a great experience and we enjoyed every minute. Good information, very knowledgable ranger guide explaining eerything. We will be back for sure and bring other friends with us. You are doing a fantastic job, congratulations.
