Possibly not meeting animal welfare requirements

Upsetting to see these creatures in spartan environments. Boardwalks & large wooden seats were dangerously rotten. Guides could not tell us what country the birds came from so not educational per advertising. No alpacas & ponies were seen so false advertising on its own website

Thanks for your review. We upgraded the pathway and facilities last year that would fix any problem straight away. We will check with team and make improvements if needed according to your comments.
