Lovely Zoo, made for the animals rather than the crowds. Really good work for animal and rainforest conservation, too.

This lovely little zoo has many surprises. Not only is there a "trail" of beautiful artworks imported from Zimbabwe, the enclosures for the animals are beautiful too. There is a great variety of animals and the enclosures are currently spacious and don't look too zoo like, however they are about to start making "seemless" enclosures to give the impression of...

Nice zoo which we used to visit regularly when we lived in the area in the '90s. Could do with a bit of TLC in places and some of the displays could/should be bigger in my opinion. That said, it looks like there is work a foot to improve the conditions. Worth a visit if you're in the area, but... More

We were surprised to see so much at this small zoo and for such a cheap entrance fee. There are a range of creatures from penguins to gorillas to giant tortoises! Unfortunately there were some animals we didn't see - the butterfly house is closed until March and none of the big cats were out in their enclosures so we... More

Whenever we visit the grandparents we stop by. Our kids love it. Great zoo. We have been coming here for years. Only downside is the restaurant which seems a little old and a bit shabby

Quite nice, it is not too big, but has a nice amont of animals, and they all seemed weel-treated. A good option, mostly with kids.

There's bigger, there's better, there's younger, there might be cleaner - but it is a perfect size for a stroll with Kids and a pretty decent range of animals, too....
