Fodor's Review

Referred to by Baslers as Zolli, this zoo is famed for its rhinoceroses, hippopotamuses, gorillas, and fabulous vivarium filled with fish and reptiles. Animal enclosures are scattered around and almost hidden by the garden environment. Very child-friendly, the zoo has a handy and enormous restaurant.
