Fodor's Review

The Snake and Animal Park is not big (you can walk through in less than two hours) but has rare white lions, gray wolves, many primate species, and birds of prey. Its selection of reptiles is overwhelming. Snake cages line the walkways, containing anything from harmless little garden snakes to poisonous cobras and giant pythons. Keep an eye out for snake shows, especially on weekends. The park has a ferry restaurant on the dam and a tea garden.
