    The thing I love best about this zoo is that it feels like a small family zoo and it feels very personal. We went with our toddler and another family, and it was great. The talks about the animals wer...  more »

  • What an awesome zoo! We were lucky as we went midweek so it was very quiet and we felt like we had the whole zoo to ourselves! The staff are so friendly and more than happy to have a chat about the animals. They have hourly activities/talks which we loved and the keepers are just great. An awesome experience and we will definitely be back! Lovely to support a family owned zoo.
  • Great little zoo for the family to visit. Free parking and a nice little gift/food shop as you enter. Nice area for picnic lunches just inside the main entrance under shady trees. The animals look healthy and the guided tour is free, call ahead to get the start times
  • First visit - unfortunately no shade, the giraffe and camels are a long walk along a dirt path and in the blistering heat, it wasn't nice. The enclosures were small and unsuitable for the animals inside, you would have larger animals in smaller cages but small sun conures in large open cages. The animals you were able to "feed" were behind wire fences and the layout made it hard to do so. What could be a fantastic zoo lacks in spark. $35 is a little steep for the 30 minutes you stay there for. You don't have to pump millions into the zoo to make a difference.
  • Awesome zoo. But there is not much shaded areas. For the kids. Take lots of water and hats. Sunscreen. It is as hot as hell. The kids always love anything g to do with animals. Would be better if they had a better range of food in the canteen. May want to pack lunch as well. The pricing is what I feel is fair.
  • Fantastic little zoo, the staff genuinely care about the animals and they seemed well looked after. Would recommend if anyone wants a nice drive out the country side and see some animals! Would go back! Thanks for the experience ladies!!
