  • Some really great animals there which I have never seen before. I would recommend this to any family who is staying in Borth. It costs £30 for a family which is worth it for what you will see. Definitely something which will stay as a memory :-)
  • Oh wow!! I loved it here! We loved it here!! It has a real feel that the animals are well cared for and you can see it in the enthusiasm of the staff and animals! The monkeys are a fav!
  • Very nice small zoo with many animals where you can get really close to them. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The children enjoyed the visit.
  • Lovely afternoon out if you are in Borth. It's a great zoo for such a small town.
  • Interactive zoo with lots of variance in they're animals. All well looked after in this beautiful little place.
