Primarilly owing to the great deal of time one gets to spend with the animals, the detailed explanation on each one (good knowledge from the guide) and the interaction with the different ones we could see, touch and play a bit with. Congratulations! it was a great experience for my family. Eduardo

The general encounter was very good , but the close encounter at the end was not Worth it. It was rushed and we felt as we wasted Money on that.
