  • Not what i was expecting. Maybe because of the time of year but not many animals to see at all. Had lunch in Safari cafe which was ok but quite high prices for mediocre food, also waitress was very....  more »

  • A very nice park. All the animals have lots of room in very large multiple enclosures. Not like Edinburgh Zoo which houses their animals in enclosures too small for them (IMO). All the animals look very well looked after, as does the whole place. Plenty of places to eat and lots of toilets dotted around the whole park. Best wildlife park I've been too.
  • Lovely wildlife park, easy to get to, plenty of parking and the animals are beautiful with lots of space. This was our second visit and we've now made a challenge for ourselves to see the Armadillo's as both times we've been they weren't out. We will see them one day I'm sure. Plenty of picnic seating for your own food and also plenty of cafes/eating places. Highly recommend this beautiful park and they are also on expanding it so I look forward to seeing even more on our next visit. Keep up the good work 🙂🙂🙂
  • Brilliant park. Lots to see and do. I have 2 kids and there's lots to interest them including some great play parks dotted around the park. Really clear on when feeding times are and most of them repeat several times a day giving you chance to see. Lots of places to sit and have your picnic. Really great day out
  • Great place to visit. Very good pricing to get in with entry by a nice polite member of staff. Animals all looking great and happy and are easy to watch and some you are able to walk through and amongst. Nice big car park a short distance away from the main park. Refreshments on sale throughout the park at reasonable prices. The Wallabies and the Lemurs are great to walk through and get up close with. Would definitely visit again.
  • Had an amazing day. The massive polar bear enclosure was brilliant we loved watching them play. Food and drink was reasonably priced and there was plenty of places for people who brought their own food. We watched both bug shows the kids loved the fact it was interactive and got to go up on stage. Great day out.
