We really enjoyed the morning spent here. There wasn't an over abundance of shade, but there was a great breeze. It is very clean and the only odor was near the lions. They had many benches, restrooms and vending machines scattered about. We choose to...More

If you are bored and need something to do. The little boat ride is fun if you can get a ticket. Wanted to try the safari but their English isn't good so some miscommunication. Not many animals and a bit run down.

Travelling to various places I always expect things that are free to be just ok, nothing special, especially if they've been there for a while, so I didn't have high hopes for Animaya. How wrong I was. I kept getting the feeling that I must...More
