We have visited many times with and without discount vouchers and cant rate the place highly enough. There is plenty to do, the food is fab and reasonably priced and the the staff are helpful. Easy to get to and navigate around the park itself. Noticed some expansions going on, on this visit..cant wait to come back to see the... More

Although we lost our way a few times (sat nav!), it was worth the late. The guide book was excellent value for money and very informative, the quality set the tone for the zoo: informative and immersive to a higher degree than any previous zoo we have visited. The animal feeding times (helpfully displayed all around) is a must but... More

We are zoo people we have been to many including San Diego Lincoln Park New York and all the UK ones, this is a different type but every bit as good in its unique way. The negative reviewers must be just that serial negative reviewers. Not only was the way the animals were presented with many free to roam very... More

Would recommend this park to anyone for a 1/2 day trip. Its easy to find, easy to park, easy to navigate around and... More

I recently spent a day as a keeper. Only one word can express my day - FANTASTIC. Very friendly staff with no pressure to do what they want. All down to my requests. Thanks to Mark, I now have a favourite big cat. The Snow Leopard. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and prepared to go "The extra... More

Always a great day out & good value for money. Lots of animals to see & plenty of wildlife roaming free around the park which is a good experience. Highly recommended.

I can't bring myself to give this place anything less than 5 stars because of the stunning animals and friendly staff, but I have to say our day was frustratingly spent chasing our tails because there wasn't a single map to be found ANYWHERE on site. In the first weekend of the school holidays to have already run out of... More
