  • Smaller zoo; but still packs a punch. Well priced ; even if it was raining exhibits were under shelter ( tree foliage, covers ) so was not a problem. Have been on a safari in Kenya so was impressed. H...  more »

  • Our family had a great day out at the zoo. We brought our own cart and found that everywhere was easily accessible. You can also hire one for the day. Great attractions and animals all look well and healthy. Visited March 2017
  • Conveniently located. Walkways are kids friendly with many close up animal viewing stations. The animals are well fed and actively moving around. They seem to be happy here. Food options in restaurant are rather limited though. Overall a good option for kids day out.
  • We've been a few times with guests of varying ages (3 to 83+ !) and everyone always enjoys it. The cafe is pretty good, and not over-priced. Be prepared to stay all day if you want to see everything.
  • Fun fun fun....we spent around 3 hours it was family quality time, learning trip for the kids and lots of fun; very nice playground area; resting areas at your convenience as well as vending machines whenever you wana grab a cold drink, ice cream or a snack; in addition drinking fountains. Accessible clean toilets at convenient different points. Don't ignore their map because it is very useful and easy to read to make your journey even more joyful.
  • Great zoo with heaps of animals from around the globe. Cool, shady walking paths contribute to the pleasure of strolling around the various sections. The animals look well taken care of and happy. The highlights for me were the rhinos 🦏, the tigers 🐅, the Galapagos tortoises​ 🐢, and the koalas🐨. There are also a lot of snakes 🐍 and lizards 🦎 that you can learn about, some snakes are really huge! I have dreamt snakes for two nights after visiting the zoo. The elephants 🐘 are as adorable as they could be and the zoo staff is very friendly and helpful.
