Very disappointing

We visited today but the facilities are not ready, the seal enclosure pool was not more than 2 feet of water and still being filled at 10.30am. Most of the facilities was closed due to it not being the high season and there was no pay reduction in the entrance fee! There should be an alternative service if the entrance fee is the same of the high season! It took us not more than 40 minutes to go round all the facility. Very very disappointed!!!

Very close to animals but don't think they're looked after properly
Jun 2016
It was a lovely and inexpensive day out with the kids, saw animals all really up close. Kids could almost touch the rhino and they really loved being able to feed the giraffes (something nowhere in UK really allows anymore).
It was great to see the animals up close but it was a little concerning that all the enclosures were very small and enclosures with geese and peacocks had no water and you could see flies and maggots crawling in between some of the geese feathers!! Yuck!! Also the rhino enclosure is really small considering they can run around at 30mph and it was in there with 3 massive bison type animals so they didn't really have room to do anything. The sea lion was trapped outside with no shade curled up in a corner and all of the animals seemed so hungry!

To be honest I feel that it's a great chance for kids to be close to animals in a not very busy zoo but they clearly seem to care more about the money they can bring in than the proper care for the animals which is really sad.

Check when it's open... But Marvellous!
We picked the only day in the month to travel to this zoo when it was closed so check before you travel.

Also is difficult to visit by bus and foot, so best to arrive by car.

However staff allowed us to look around even when closed, and the animals were well cared for. Areas for eating were shaded and lunch liked a reasonable price. Would recommend for a half day trip maybe combined with San Vito marina nearby.
