  • An enjoyable day out for a family. Not the biggest Zoo, but still enjoyable. There is a bus ride for everyone which gives you an overall view of the park and animals. While on the bus there are severa...  more »
  • Great experience - ZOO African Safari way, you can walk in a wild bus in the middle of the animals, it's nice to see the animals in freedom in a huge space. We feel the animals happy and relaxed!

  • Highlight was the giraffes. Enjoyed watching them come in for a feed. Also loved watching the chimpanzees. Wouldn't recommend coming on a hot day as there's lots of walking. Bus was easy to hop on and...  more »

  • We arrived at 10 am on a beautiful 23c day. It had been quite a few years since we visited last. The shuttle buses run every 1/2 hr . The volunteer guides are very informative and helpful. With the drop offs and pick ups makes it easy in air con comfort. Great walking tracks that are well marked for the fit. Nice food and drinks and shaded area's with tables at the kiosk finnish the day off.
  • This is the most amazing zoo in Australia, giraffes, cheetahs and lions. Rhinos and meerkats, there's so much to see. It feels more like a safari. Our guides were very courteous and knowledgeable and the coaches very clean and comfortable. I've never seen such healthy animals, they obviously receive the best care and the environment is ideal, they all have wonderfully bright colorful fur / skin. The animals are happy and respected, highly recommended.
  • Would highly recommend! I had never heard of this zoo until I arrived in Adelaide. It was a fantastic experience that I would recommend to any visitor. The staff were extremely knowledgable and it was incredible to see the animals so close! I can't wait to come back once the glass cube is finished being built in the lion enclosure.
  • Fantastic open plains zoo with lots of interesting and passionate volunteers to help make the experience as full as possible. You can walk of take the bus tours or a combination and it's a really fantastic day out for people of any age, if a little pricey. It's all going to a good cause, though, so I can't begrudge them the entry fee.
  • Great place to spend the day with family. Picnic areas for lunch as well as a cafeteria. Tour buses available with knowledgeable guides. Keeper talks on various animals scheduled all day. Lots to do.
