“Granddaughters first visit to a fantastic family attraction in Dundee”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Yet again visiting our favourite Dundee attraction was excellent, Zoo great, staff great, atmosphere great, walking around browsing the animals, birds great, only downside yet again the cafe, over priced, missed the mark, tea, coffee, chocolate drinks with cakes which looked rather dated this was our third time of trying the cafe & again very disappointed. PLEASE don't let this put you off bring your own sandwiches, etc, the family, kids will thoroughly enjoy this well looked after Zoo a jewel in Dundee's crown.

Special mention to staff member Gill, so very helpful.

“FAMILY OUTING”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Had a lovely day, activities for the grandchildren who were able to take home what they made. Pity about a lot of empty animal enclosures, but what did have wildlife was clean and well kept. Good information, cafe helped out with plastic knives for our picnic!

“great day out”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

since the zoo has been done up, its much better.
the bear enclousure is 10x bigger and there is a good viewing point to see them.
it can be a bit pricey so make sure you get the family ticket or take a student card etc to get some money off.
over all, a great day out for all ages and worth a visit.

“Often forgotten about but it is good!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

It is easy to forget this is here as it is out of the way of the centre and it is quite small. It makes for a really nice day out though, especially when it's sunny. The animals are happy and it usually doesn't have many visitors at a time so your visit is likely to be relaxed and fun. They have a nice wee cafe as well with cakes and stuff.

“Great for Kids and Adults”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Despite being born in Dundee, I had never visited the wildlife centre in recent years. I took the opportunity to visit with my granddaughter last week and was very impressed with both the range of animals, the tidiness of the attraction and the low admission cost. Most definitely worth a visit with a young family. Feeding time was interesting.
