  • Went on a damp Sunday and some animals not out. Found coffee cafe prices on high side. At around £22 each entry steep. Venue does important work and suppose this and cost of running means entry costs have to be at this level. Will return when warmer weather arrives.
  • One of my absolute favourite places to visit. They do incredible work. Lovely enclosures with very happy animals. Staff are very friendly and informative. They also own Port Lympne which has some amazing places to stay.
