It is the second largest and one of the most visited zoos in the country. It was founded in 1946 with the aim to - distinguishing itself from others. They focused primarily on the animals of the African continent.
The most famous director of the ZOO, Josef Wágner, had a dream to build an African safari. Over the years, it was more or less successfuly accomplished. Today, there is not only the original African safari, but also the Lion Safari and also Pedestrian one, where people walk on the wooden paths.
In the parking lot you will find several places for people with disabilities, but I recommend coming here as soon as possible. Usually it's like in an anthill. For visitors in the wheelchair the entrance is wider, so it is fine.
The terrain of the zoo is flat compared to other zoos. Higher protective bushes may sometimes interfere with the view, but there are lower parts for children everywhere, where you can see from the wheelchair, so there's no problem. The crowd of people and children disappears over time and everyone can see well.
Long and very beautiful is an Viewing Trail along the giraffes, rhinos and antelopes. Move around carefully, because you will meet many people and especially kids. Nearby they have one more view point to see of giraffes and zebras, but stairs lead to it.
If you get hungry, there are plenty of stalls and restaurants to choose from with a variety of snacks. They boycott palm oil products , straws are made of paper and cutlery is made of wood. That's what my mom and I saw while dinning by rope park.
We wish a pleasant trip to the breathtaking world of exotic animals.
