More of a kids zoo than others I have been to. Some interesting animals and the place is deceptively big. two areas where you can interact with the animals which is good. The amenities were a good standard and plenty of them! Take a sturdy pair of shoes as you will be taking on some steep hills! Not bad for a day out!
Its amazing.. great set up, huge variety of animals and enormous amount of info and knowledge.. the animals homes are fantastic for each of their needs.. a fabulous day out.. caters for huge variety of needs for the public to enjoy the facilities.. love it..
