We always tend to drop in on this wildlife centre when we in the area as it is such a charming little place and they do great conservation work. It is a small place but makes the most of its space and has some really interesting animals there that you would not see in larger establishments. We were lucky enough... More

Small but very interesting zoo doing good work for conservation. Well worth a visit. Quite a few animals that I had not seen or even heard of before.

I recently visited this fantastic small zoo in south Devon, I am an annual member and volunteer at this zoo, however I find there is always something exciting to see. There have been loads of primate births this year including a red titi monkey, yellowed breasted capuchin, three pygmy marmosets and a white-faced saki monkey. However there are lots more... More

Lovely small zoo - they pack a lot into a small space. Mostly primates, but some other species I hadn't seen before. The tiny primates were amazing - I've only ever seen most of them in the dark and in the distance at London Zoo. This zoo does a really good job of providing ample space for the animals whilst...

Really enjoyed our visit to the zoo. It's not huge but what it does offer are some unique species that you probably haven't seen before. The staff are friendly and each enclosure has some interesting facts about each animal. The animals all seemed well cared for. There's quite a large pay and display car park opposite that's reasonably priced. We... More

It's a small zoo, but there is enough to make it worth your while visiting. The nocturnal bit was particularly interesting to us.

We went here with the grandchildren and had a great time. The walkways are mostly wooden decking. We were able to maneuver the buggy around without too much difficulty. The animals are well presented often with multiple viewpoints. Well worth a visit.

We took the ferry from Teignmouth and walked up the hill to the zoo. The views were amazing. The little zoo is set on the hillside above Shaldon. The animals are obviously very well cared for and informative staff were on hand to answer questions. We did not recognise most of the animals which made it even more interesting. No... More

Mainly monkeys here, who were very sweet, but felt they needed a little more room to move around in. Lots of interesting information and they do good work by working with zoos within Devon by helping to keep certain breeds from becoming extinct.

Don't go here and expect lions and tigers. This is a small zoo but it really benefits from it. There's a decent range of animals for the sight which includes various primates and marsupials. There enclosures are mostly of really good size and the animals clearly have a lovely relationship with the keepers. It will fill up between an hour... More
