  • I have learned alot about animals thanks to Five Sisters Zoo, I liked all the animals, including the Meerkat & Asian Short-clawed Otter. Food service was alright, only problem was the mess outside, I really want a cleaner (person who keeps an area clean) for outside the cafe (No stars lost!). Overall, it was great!
  • We had a fantastic day out with the family at Five Sisters Zoo, there was plenty to see and one of the first Zoo's that I've been to that the animals were active and actually looked happy. Great to see a place that was visibly still developing new areas with paths and a new nature trail, with lots more planned for 2016 Also a real eye opener with the information provided about the 3 ex circus bears and the 4 ex circus lions that have been re-homed within the Zoo, certainly a good cause to donate too. Overall a great day out, worth every penny and would definitely return
  • Fantastic day out for the whole family. Could easily spend hours there. Thinking if getting a season pass too. Well worth it.
  • Just got home from 5sisters zoo and had a great day. Took our 2 year old today and we all loved it. The animals are all really well cared for and the enclosures are great. Much better than edinburgh zoo were unhappy looking animals are crammed in small spaces. All the animals here looked happy and healthy and its great to see that this is not about profit but about animal welfare. Highly recommend and can get upclose with most of the animals there. Staff all friendly and happy to chat.
  • Absolutely love this wee zoo all staff are so friendly . Kids love the wolves and fennoc foxes can't wait to visit again. Well worth the money.
