Loved being able to hire a disability scooter to see 95% of animals with ease. Areas for the apes and bears excellent for photography and we spent ages watching from well placed seats. Good WC and catering facilities throughout. Staff very helpful

We had mixed views on this..it was dear to enter but the facilities for the animals showed where the money goes..you need to know the Durrell story a little to know this wan't a zoo collection but more personal and then it makes more sense.. a lovely area to walk round and then a reward of cake at the end!!

A lot of species of animals including Gorillas, Orangutans, Commodo Dragons and much more. The wolves weren't there which was disappointing though

This zoo was a lot bigger than I expected and the animals all looked happy and healthy. There was a baby gorilla and baby orangutan which were both very popular. The keeper talks about the orangutans was more about conservation and the use of palm oil in the destruction of habitat and not much about the actual animals they have... More

We visited whilst on holiday and had a brilliant day. There was a good variety of animals and the enclosures all seemed very well kept and spacious. There was lots of information to read and several keepers made time to talk to us about the animals. We were expecting the food at the cafe to be fairly standard but were... More

Not only do they treat the animals well, they look after the humans well, too. There are plenty of pleasant open spaces in which to have picnics, and there are adequate toilet and eating facilities, too. Of course the main purpose of our visit was to see animals that in danger of extinction, and they are displayed in a very... More

While we didn't get to see the park as we arrive after closing time we did get to see the Oddsocks Company perform the Comedy of Errors. Well, what a hoot. Lots of fezzes, nuns and bad jokes. Laughed and laughed and laughed. If you can get to see them anywhere do!
