About
We are a small zoo in mid-Wales, between Aberystwyth and Machynlleth, only a short walk from the Borth railway. A sanctuary for exotic animals and a place to relax. Visit us for a day to remember!

Thank you for the great review. Over the coming winter months, when we are quieter, we intend to hold special events for photography clubs, allowing photographers close up experiences with our animal family. Follow our Facebook page as details will be announced on there soon.
