  • Very nice animal park. Large areas for the animals, and a park in wonderful surroundings. In fact, the zoo is in a park and so you cannot only see the animals, but also old trees in particular. Very quiet and very affordable.
  • Brilliant day out, lots of animals to see, not to hard to walk around. Food is a bit expensive so bring something with you. All in all good for the whole family :)
  • Amazing Park, to see such rare animals and learn about the breeding programs that are in place to release them back into the wild is outstanding. And the price for a family ticket is great value for money
  • Fantastic day out with so much to see and do. Staff are so helpful, knowledgeable and passionate about the animals. Will return!
  • Amazing place with fantastic enclosures Brilliant place for day out
