I remember going there the first time as a kid how the mounted elephant scared me, a good place for the kids to gain some knowledge on nature. Good place to go for a lazy inexpensive weekend outing. more »
It is a good place to visit, however the Zim economy has affected the upkeep of the place. There are live snakes there, Gabon vipers even. It's worth a visit
