Comments about Smart Destinations :

LOVE this park! It's so interesting and beautiful. There are so many natural animal interactions and you don't get the feeling that the animals are caged up. Having been to many zoos and also safari in South Africa, I can say this is the closet thing to the real deal ... Also I love that it's not as crowded as traditional theme parks, great prices, and fun for all ages.
