On arrival, plenty of parking and not too far to walk to main building. Prices seem a little steep if I'm honest but good to see re-investment going on. Enclosures pretty what you would expect but what really stands out over a zoo is the enclosures which you can enter and also those with viewing platforms/walkways elevated for great viewing....

Went as a birthday gift from my son, who had also paid for us to have the giraffe experience, where we got up close and fed these lovely animals. Reasonably priced entrance prices, a fab day out, fantastic to see the animals in huge enclosures, no tiny cages here, even areas where you can walk thro areas where the animals... More

We had a lovely day out here. lots of things to see and do. Kids loved looking at all the different animals seeing some get fed and some playing. Even tho it is fairly spread out and quite a lot of walking involved it didn't bother us and didn't feel like you were walking lots. We ate at monkey play... More

A well thought out wildlife park where the animals all appear unstressed and happy but with great viewing areas. The two polar bears playing is the best treat.

Its a bit expensive to get in. It is worth a visit but you wouldn't visit often because of the price. The animals are well looked after and have in large area's to live in. There is a lot of walking to do and the animals when we was there were laid down asleep but you could still see them.... More

Nice day out. Bit on the pricey side for whats there. Very spaced out and not as many animals as we expected.lions were hard to see as so far away. Would be better at half the price,as expensive for a large family
