Lovely friendly lady greeted us and sorted out the Gift Aid so that the zoo can really benefit from the entrance fee. The animals were fascinating with clear easy to read information which is great for adults and children alike. My favourites were the Squirrel Monkeys who were always busy! All the animals are very well cared for by a... More

Spent about 45 minutes wondering around this small sanctuary. Located on a slope so not too suitable for people having walking difficulties even though they had build it for wheel chair friendly. The monkeys n etc are really cute n they have talks in different times written on the board. You can either park at the big carpark with adjoining... More

Because the trust is run by enthusiastic volunteers the experience we got was extra special. The people looking after the animals were highly knowledgable and interested in taking to us to make our visit even more enjoyable. This is a small and specialist zoo with limited space. But the Wildlife Trust manages to pack a lot in. We spent a... More

We visited the wildlife park at the end of June with our 2 1/2 year old. She absolutely loved seeing the monkeys, lemurs and the meer cats. The zoo is small but well laid out and there was plenty to see for small visitors. The animals were well looked after and it was especially impressive to see all the young... More

We arrived here by accident as we were looking for a place to have a picnic and whilst we were munching on our sandwiches, we could hear what sounded like monkeys, which was quite unexpected! We had a wander over and as it wasn't very expensive, we decided to pop in and have a look round. What a joy it... More

We visited here on a very wet day so a few of the animals were hidden away. We have visited quite a few zoo's and we were very disappointed with what was here. It was a lot smaller than I expected. They are obviously doing a very good job at conservation but it took less than an hour to wander... More

Good for the kids but much else. As others have said you get round comfortably in on hour. The animals look happy.

Seen this place advertised a lot over the past few years we had visited dawlish and always wanted to go and check it out. Lovely little place and the monkeys and meerkats were great. Nothing else really going on though but wasn't expense to go in so can't really complain. Only took 45 mins to go around

We took our little monkey to see these little monkey's and she loved it (and so did we). The zoo is only small and doesn't take long to walk around but you can have your hand stamped and visit again later that day. Keep a look out for the escaping meer cat - he is adorable!

We visited here after taking the Shaldon/Teignmouth ferry and receiving free tickets for the children! We didn't realise their was a zoo until then, we weren't disappointed, what appeared to be a very small zoo with perhaps not much to see, we were surprised by its array of animals. It homes a wide range of rare and interesting monkeys, reptiles,... More
