We arrived on a rainy Thursday noon in early July and there were hardly anyone else inside this bird paradise and botanical garden. We had loads of fun walking around going to enclosures of flamingos and emus. My favorite is the tranquil pond in the back of the garden with plenty of carps and Mandarin ducks. This garden also has the largest number of varieties of owls in captivity, some of the owls are stunning. The bird show happens at 1030am, 130pm and 330pm and lasts for 15min. Feeding baby penguins were fun for my boys. The biggest attraction for us is close encounter with fluffy parakeets, penguins, flamingos, rabbits and other fury animals without much restriction... worth making a stop if you are in the neighborhood

They had a lot of birds. The place was a bit dirty and smelly. I think the manager should repair the holes in the carpet and make sure it doesn't stink.

If you want to see as many as possible the owls in the world, you cannot miss this Garden....
The life show of owl and hawk is also very interesting and impressive, which would be good for families trip, especially with children....
