Had a great day out here, plenty to do. The drive around the safari park is excellent, especially the baboon part. Just be prepared to have your car damaged if you go in this area which is optional. Would definitely visit again.

There is a large pedestrianised area with rides and shows too though. No car needed 4 that. Think wristbands are 10 each. Includes the train so well worth it 4 the kiddies. Think adults go on rides free with a paid wristband... More
