Well laid out with tarmac paths and boardwalks through the reed beds with cool hides looking out across the open water. Excellent cafe with big windows. Ample parking. Wheelchair friendly.

I went here with my partner at the end of May, beautiful day. So much to see and explore. Such a wonderful place/haven for birds. I love the fact people were told via signs that some areas were chained off so the birds felt safe...More

Thanks for your positive review. Our Boat Safari runs all year around and can accomodate non-motorized wheelchairs, too. We do run 2 or 3 boats on busier, warmer days.

Thanks for your positve review. I'm am sorry to hear there was a miscommunication about the boat times during your visit. We have limited our hand feeding area to limit pests who also predate eggs from wild birds and the birds in our collection.
