  • We booked here when the £20 winter admission was on, we also decided to book our 3 year old in to see Santa at their grotto. The whole day was a bit of a let down. We live about 40 minutes from...  more »
  • Well worth visiting, all three of us enjoyed it (from 11 to 51) very well organised and we loved driving through the baboons and the lions .  more »

  • My family and I had a wonderful day out here. We could not fault the experience. Amazing how close you can get to the animals. The "walking safari" did not disappoint either. We were particularly impressed with the tiger enclosure and the sea lions. Staff were very welcoming too
  • Great day out. Went through the monkey enclosure and didn't get the car destroyed!! Maybe they have enough windscreen wipers and wing mirrors now 😂. Lions were wonderful. So majestic. Kids enjoyed the mini theme park. The woodland walk was nice, we've always missed that in the past. Plus a trip on the boating lake to follow. Loads of dragonfly's over the water. Lovely to see. Not over busy so didn't have to queue long. Will definitely visit again.
  • Great day out for the family. We booked the baboon bus, and the drivers knowledge of the animals was superb. She made the experience well worth the additional cost. Bit of a long queue at the Oasis restaurant, but the food was great, so worth the wait in the end
  • As a family we had the best day out ! We all loved it. We went through the Safari, had a lovely lunch and then saw the sea lion show, went around the zoo, went on the rides and then saw the excellent bird show and quickly dashed to the car and just made a second trip around the Safari where all the animals were out. Can't recommend this place enough for a family day out.
  • If you are foot visitor (meaning without your own car) they will advise you to pay £6 to go on the bus tour, on to of the £10 it normally cost to buy the ticket online. I didn't opt for the bus tour so the visit took briefly 1h30 in (probably less). Beautiful but few animals, carers love their animal it's beautiful to see. Nice place for families
