Good for what it is- a representative collection of South American animals

Animals are not robots, they behave to suit themselves.Your viewing experience will vary, but a little patience will be rewarding. I had an excellent viewing of the tapirs and capybaras, but a lady complained to me that she had not seen a tapir when she visited their enclosure. Be patient, wait a few minutes or come back in an hour... More

Decided to visit the zoo with my 5 year old son; he absolutely loved it and couldn't get enough. The only downside was that some animals weren't outside but it was quite cold yesterday so I don't blame them! The food was good and very reasonably priced. We will definitely visit again when in the area.

Fab morning with my 8 year old grandson. A clean and tidy zoo with some lovely animals. We particularly loved the big cats. Cafe was very reasonably priced with a good variety. Most definitely worth a visit..

This is a nicely laid out little zoo. Although not huge the enclosures offer the animals plenty of sun, shade and also some stimulation which is always good to see. The animals look well cared for and nourished. There is also a good safe play area for children, a cafe and a shop. It is fairly small so half a... More

This isn't the largest zoo in the world, you're not going to fill a day, but the price fairly reflects this, at £11.50 per adult it is half the price of most zoos. The animal enclosures are lovely and varied. There are free roaming Mara's which are really cute, some large cats, birds, reptiles, monkeys and more. The children's play... More

Fantastic afternoon a little on the expensive side but the feline section was amazing highly recommended .. Just wished the up keep of some of the attractions was better looked really tired and they were building a housing estate on the rear of the park which seems a little odd ...

We thoroughly enjoyed our day at Amazona. It's not particularly large but it's well laid out with lots of information. The keeper feeding sessions were very informative. We spent a good four hours and it kept the teenage kids engaged the whole time.

Yes, there are bigger and more varied zoos in the area, but I haven't seen amazona pretending to be anything other than a small, specialized zoo, so I don't see any issue with this.There's still plenty to see, informative feeding times and a nice easy layout. The animals seem healthy and happy (despite the opinions of some other reviewers here,... More

This is a small zoo but the animals and birds look to be very well cared for. All the enclosures were clean and the staff were friendly. We spent a good two hours there but if you have children there are plenty of activities for them to do so you could easily spend 3 or 4 hours there. The cafe... More

We visited this zoo as a family and the only thing I liked about this was the indoor play equipment and the bouncing pillows outdoors. The play equipment outside is surrounded by birds that hiss if you go near the play equipment. puma's and Jaguars looked like they were going crazy and I personally think the enclosures are too small...

The birds you mention are visiting Grey Lag Geese, they choose to come here to breed. I am sorry that they were in your way and hissed at you at the outdoor play area, but they are wild birds and as such its not really our fault! They are due to migrate very soon. We have many animals here, some... More
