  • Excellent Zoo on of the best I've ever been to, well worth a visit .
  • A great day out with the kids! Although I think the entrance fee is a little steep, especially for kids.
  • A full 5 hours of family fun. A great array of animals in a stunning location. Having coffee overlooking the giraffes was a real experience! It gets very busy, but there's plenty of space. Highly recommended for all age groups, though a lot of walking involved to get around. Pushchair and wheelchair friendly in most places.
  • A great family day out. The park is an easy stroll around and the animals are wonderful. It took us just over 4 hours to go around on a hot day. Free parking is available directly opposite the park entrance.
  • A place that you can visit time after time without seeing the same thing. Well worth a visit.
