This was excellent. Our guide, Emily, was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We had a very interesting tour of the zoo which has a good variety of animals, then fed the meerkats and porcupine in their enclosure which was an amazing and hilarious experience.

My son went during the October half term for the three day animal academy (he is aged 12). They did one day with exotics, one day with farm animals and one day with the zoo animals. He thoroughly enjoyed it, would recommend to others.
