  • Very disappointing! Firstly, most of the restaurants were closed and all food kiosks were closed. It was so sad to see such spacious grounds when the animals had such poor enclosures. The orang-utans....  more

  • Great day out. We enjoyed the whole day and seen 95% of the animals. Some were sleeping but we were not put off. Excellent seating areas and some play areas the kids really enjoyed. I hired a mobility scooter and it made it easier. No hassle and I believe we all enjoyed the visit. Take a packed lunch and a change of clothes/towels for the wet play area.
  • We visited at 1.30 and left at 6 pm. We managed to see all the animals. We found the staff very helpful and polite. Parking was free. Gift shop prices average. There were two queues to see some animals but we just came back later when there were no queues. We really enjoyed our day. I would recommend a visit. They don't have elephants but have many more animals.
