  • This is a place where you need good and comfortable walking shoes. You would not notice the hours fly as there are lots of animals to see and feed. As an added bonus, there is a seal and parrot show! ...  more »

  • Huge zoo. Extremely busy but didn't feel overwhelming. Lots of different types of animals, but seemed like an overwhelming amount of monkeys and apes.
  • Hands on experience for children and adults. A whole day spent there is a day well spent. Reasonably priced, free for disabled people. Lacks places to eat your picnic but that really is the only negative. Old and young enjoyed feeding the Giraffes and petting the Rhinos. What more can I say!
  • Nice lay-out, but several cages are to small for the animals. I would suggest less animals bigger cages. Some animals were quit stressed.
  • Such a massive zoo with lots of different animals to see. The best bit is feeding the giraffes popcorn when you first go in! A great experience.
  • Visited a few years back, was possibly the best zoo experience I've had. Touched so many different animals and got close to some amazing creatures.
