  • Our family love it here. Really wide range of animals and the great thing is that the enclosures really seem to have been well thought out. Viewing platforms add a great chance to see the giraffes, tigers and leopard. Outdoor play area is great too and our kids thoroughly enjoyed their trip. Plenty of. Cafe facilities as you walk round and picnic areas for those who bring their own food. Great day - we will be back!
  • It's a great place with a very friendly, helpful, chatty (in a good way) staff. It's nice not just to see the animals but also to take the walks in nature and learn about the animals with their informative, regular talks. I used it as a good place to practice my photography as the animals and their habitats provide a variety of colours, patterns, textures and distances for your photos. My complaint with this place would be that some of their cafes close too early. However, if you are in time for the cafes the food is nice, especially the cakes. I have spent many wonderful afternoon here. Yes, it has repeat value. And it's good for a solo walk with a camera and also with a day out with the kids. Check out their annual membership too.
  • Great place to walk round and view some of the big 5..all in all very large enclosures. The only observations I would make is that they are in basically green grassland with a bit of landscaping. My view is...I would like the enclosures to be sculptured in a more Savanna style setting. There are also 3 good children play areas.. So all in all a great place to spend a few hours...
  • A great day out of you have kids or half day out if you don't. We come here often with the annual pass, it's never disappointing. The enclosures are large and well designed with good quiet areas for the animals. The animals are clearly well cared for and loved by the keepers. Good to see the park expanding and going from strength to strength. The cafe near the giraffe enclosure does a great coffee and soup.
  • Brilliant day out for the family. Animals are well looked after with big enclosure's. Plenty of space to walk around. Play area's that are well thought out. Providing plenty of space for children to run around and let of steam. Reasonably priced cafes that offer family deals.
