Had a fantastic morning here, started by the drive through part which can do as many times as you like looking close up to the animals. We then parked up and walked the other areas. Got a large variet... more »

Really friendly park which we as a family thoroughly enjoyed. Even as we entered the park to pay the gentleman on the gate was so helpful and thoughtful. Whilst on the park you can also book free.of charge a small bus tour around the grounds should you not wish to drive yourself. The guide was so helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our day thank you.
My wife and I visited at 10am on a Saturday. Enclosures were a decent size and looked well maintained as did the animals. The drive around area was great, animals left to roam free-ish in a very big area. You don't have to take your car if you don't want to, there's a bus ride included in your ticket price. Staff we spoke with were very helpful and are constantly checking on the animals/driving round the paddock. A great selection of animals, some more unusual species than the standard lions and tigers and bears. Wild cats sanctuary is amazing! The park itself is quite big but wont take a whole day to go round. We started at 10 am and left around 2pm, having drove round the enclosure twice. Although wheelchair accessible, the park is built on a hill and some of the terrain is pretty uneven and would be hard to navigate with the infirm or disabled. Would definitely recommend a visit to people of all ages. We didn't use any of the catering facilities. Toilets were clean, car park is big with dedicated spaces for busses and campervans. Opening hours vary by season so check before you go. There are a few sheltered areas on the walk round but it can get pretty windy near the top of the hill, bring a jacket (and a hat and a scarf).
Different zoos have different stars. Although it is the polar bears ( just saw Artos and Walter the boys for feed time) my favourite were the lovely and graceful snow leopards.i can't get them out of my mind. My tip is, take the guided tour bus which u need to book (free) @ the shop. There is more to learn from it then just driving ur car around its compound.
Had a great day out at the park yesterday. Managed to see all the animals and attended a few feeding sessions. We had the good fortune to attend a few of the talks given by a young man called Zac. He is obviously very passionate about his job and this is reflected in his ability to deliver a vast amount of information about the animals. He also took time to answer all our questions. A definite asset to this park. We usually visit once a year - sometimes twice - and always have a good time. Good value for money in the cafe with pleasant and friendly staff.
This is s great value day out with lots to see and do. It is a great place to walk round and learn from. The guided tour of the main reserve is fantastic and only costs a suggested donation of £1 per person. A truely great day out for everyone
