Was here 4 years ago with grand daughter who loved it. Returned today and it was terribly run down overgrown and neglected. Okay if you liked goats, loads of them! Bit pricey too.

On a return visit following one in the spring of 2014 on a hot July day we saw several exhibits feeling the heat as we were. There is an amazing selection of animals and such ventures should be given support. We had a cheery welcome...More

We visited the park during our holiday. It was a lovely day and we had a nice walk around. Plenty to see. I loved watching the Meerkats. One of our family had the chance to hold a snake. The staff were very friendly.

It may not be as fancy as some of the really big and much busier wildlife parks elsewhere but my kids had a great time looking at all the animals and feeding some of them. It's not cheap, but probably comparable to sitting in the...More
