A great day out for both adults and kids, so much more than crocodiles
Sep 2021 • Solo
A really great attraction with a diverse mix of animals from across the world that are well cared for. Crocodiles are the main attraction of course, but there are also snakes, meerkat, tamarind and über-cute short-clawed Asian otters. My absolute favourites were the giant Galapagous tortoises and the Komodo Dragon. I have never seen these anywhere else and probably won't ever travel to where they live in the wild. There is a lot of interesting information throughout the buildings, plenty for adults and children to learn! All the enclosures are a good size, with naturalistic environments. The zoo also engages with conservation work and rescues animals.

The cafe has a good selection of hot and cold food, including paninis, salad boxes and sandwiches, hot/cold drinks and ice creams. There is also a picnic area. I went on a weekday in term time so can't say how busy it gets at weekends. It is very nice that they don't play any annoying music like some animal attractions do.

There are a few COVID restrictions still, including a one way system (but you can go round as many times as you like). Masks are not mandatory indoors (just as well as it is warm in there!) but all the staff were wearing them. The talks and animal handling sessions have not yet restarted but ask when the Mile crocodiles are bring fed that day as it is well worth seeing them leap out of the water! The staff were very friendly and welcoming, a real credit.

Excellent day out
Sep 2021 • Couples
We decided to go for a VIP experience, the booking was straight forward and the chap on the phone was very pleasant.
On the day we were introduced to Nick who would be with us all day.
Nick was so knowledgeable, every question on crocodiles we threw at him he knew, very confident young man.
All in all we had a superb day, couldn't fault anything

Absolutely Brilliant, Jnr Crocodile Keeper
Sep 2021 • Family
Absolutely brilliant! We booked our boys in for the Junior Crocodile Keeper experience. What an amazing few hours we had. Nick was our keeper who gave us a tour and gave us so much information, the afternoon was very informative indeed. The boys were able to hold baby crocodiles and feed crocodiles. The zoo was easy to find and there is free parking. Staff are very friendly and the cafe and shop are lovely too! This is a must for any reptile, dinosaur lover. Thank you all at the zoo for a lovely, informative afternoon.

Picnic amongst crocs!
Sep 2021 • Family
My youngest loves all things dinosaurs/animals. I also wanted to see something a bit different to a ‘zoo’, and wanted a trip down to the Cotswolds. This popped up in my search. It’s tucked away down a lane and upon parking up, your expectations get lowered. You are greeted by some very helpful staff and guided through the one way system. There are lots to see and explanation plaques which are very helpful. It’s very tidy and clean and child friendly as the viewing areas are at the appropriate heights.
The cafe serves a good range of food and drinks. Lots of benches to picnic at in the outdoor part (looks like you are exiting) but you’re heading to the Big Croc area. Also some climbing frames too.
Big people and little people (6 & 8 year old) enjoyed it. Was great to see crocs up close, but also safely.
Recommend a visit, probably around 2 hours. If you forget to take a picnic, their is a good range of food.

Nice few hours
Aug 2021
Went on a Saturday, pre purchased tickets, arrived approx 11:30, I checked to see how much 'capacity' was available & it seemed for pre purchase there was about 50% capacity booked. Fair amount of parking though spaces a bit 'tight' & not very well marked!
Crocs & snakes not much activity, but monkey's, otters & some meercats were lively enough. Several picnic tables if you have your own lunch, pity they were being used just as 'seating' whilst watching children play though, if we hadn't eaten at 12:00 we'd have had nowhere to sit. Cafe seating was limited. Can't comment on food as we brought our own, but it looked reasonable.
All-in-all a nice 2 hours spent there with a 13 & 11 year old, but no interaction/feeding/handling to watch or pay to participate in, so less interesting than it might be when any of that restarts. Admission not outrageously expensive, though the place is looking a bit 'tired', to be expected given pandemic lockdowns on/off all last year.

Jaw-some!
Aug 2021
My young boy was really looking forward to this on our week long stay in the Cotswolds. His particular favourite was indeed all the crocodiles and alligators on show. It was informative and interesting. There were other animals to see as well, the giant tortoises were particularly captivating.

I enjoyed this place though it would have benefited from more of a outdoor setting. Most of the crocs understandably have to be kept in warmer temperatures indoors. Their accommodation from the outside looked as if it was a warehouse.

Very worth it
Aug 2021 • Couples
Lovely place. Some of the animals weren't there which was a shame and some of the spaces were small. There is a o e way system but unfortunately people just do whatever they want.

Depressing set up seeing these beautiful animals in captivity
Aug 2021 • Family
It was quite depressing seeing all these beautiful creatures kept in containers...some shockingly too small with very little room for the animals to move around. We couldn't stay long because suffocating smoke was pouring out from a chimney on the premises (a staff member told us they burn wood to maintain the temperature for the animals). All the visitors were complaining about it. It was like walking through bonfire smoke and gave us all sore throats. We therefore didn't stay long as it was a serious health issue, especially for my little granddaughter.

Some really amazing crocs!
Aug 2021
This was pretty good value (family ticket £36) for an hour or so of very interesting crocodiles, tortoises, caimans etc. The larger reptiles in the main croc house (very hot - be warned - especially with your mask on, but they have to do it for obvious reasons!) housed some really impressive and large crocodiles well worth a visit. You could probably spend an hour here. You need to book in advance. There is a reasonable amount of free parking.
