Had a great day out with teens and tweens. So many animals to see, all up close and personal. Loved the talks too. Great fun. All the animals looked happy and healthy, especially those birds wandering around the paths with us 😊👍🏼

This place is well and truly a credit to smaller zoos, such a dedicated and friendly team of staff who really seem to know and understand the animals. Loved the parrot and the guinea pig fishing and even at 19 I was allowed to join...More

Great day for all the family - events and things to enjoy for all ages - and who doesn't like animals!

The park is cramped, with little space to walk around, let alone run and play. The animals have just a little space, and their group sizes are pitifully small.More

Thankyou for your Review and by visiting you are helping us to continue and grow into the future. Just a little confused though with your comment about space. If the animals have little space in your opinion how can you then say our group sizes...More

My 6 year old loved the park he said it was his favourite part of the holiday. The talk where the two ladies showed us millipedes and snakes was really good and both very friendly and took time to explain everything to my son. Fabulous...More

We had a nice day out here, the entrance fee is reasonable and there's a decent amount to see. We just thought the park was quite overgrown in many places and could use a clean. Some animals needed their water bowls refilling. It was very...More
