Local and exotic animals are neighbors at Drusillas Park, where you'll also find a variety of hands-on activities. Although the animal population of the zoo grows every year, the zoo's policy is to house only small creatures. This policy is meant to appeal to the younger children who frequent the zoo for its educational activities and adventure play area with swings, slides, and an indoor soft play center. A large variety of primates populate the trees within the zoo: Capuchin monkeys, Colobus monkeys, macaques, and Lar gibbons.

On the face of it, taking 2 grandchildren aged 6 and 3 to Drusilla’s for the day wasn’t cheap. But it was a treat and what a treat it was. So many animals to see with really helpful aids. I didn’t kno... more »
An amazing day out for the family! The animals look happy and cared for and the zookeepers are very knowledgeable. The play area is huge and there's a few rides which have a short queue time. Lots of toilets which is good for a big area and they were all clean. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is reasonably priced although I brought packed lunches for the kids. Great value for money, I took my cousins and they had an amazing day and so did I which is always nice because often places will be boring for the adults. Think I had more fun than they did!
Great place to bring kids. Educational information everywhere about the animals plus lots of things to try. Then you have the different playgrounds which are age restricted so little ones don't get knocked over by bigger kids. Also on nice days the water park is great fun.
