Very disappointed after visiting here. Its very unkept and over grown. The glass was so dirty it was difficult to see the animals. The toilets were disgusting and the baby changing had spiders crawling all over it. Tried to speak to the lady in charge...More

Visited when on holiday locally, thoroughly enjoyed this little gem of a animal park, although it isn’t the largest of places, the price to attend is very reasonable and I was surprised at some of the animals on site.

All the pens or cages were in a poor state, everywhere was overgrown and unkempt, an overall feeling of decay, animals were in a sad state. Caffateri was expensive,£1_30 for a small bottle of water. Will not return.
