Another lovely visit
Oct 2021 • Family
We have been a few times before, but not for a couple of years. We absolutely love seeing all the sloths, armadillos, slow loris and other beautiful animals. It is relatively small but good for a couple of hours of fun. There is a good kids park and a separate soft play (extra charge). You can also get a free return to come back within 7 days.

Interesting medium size zoo for all the family.
Sep 2021
A fascinating zoo which had many unusual animals. It kept us adults entertained as well as my young granddaughter.

There are no big animals, the largest being a tapir, but there was a good variety of, mostly South American, animals. They seem well looked after and presented well to the public, especially we liked the nocturnal zone. The meerkats may not be from the region but were very entertaining. You are up close to the animals and can even walk round the lemur enclosure with a keeper and may have one jump on you!

There is dinosaur exhibit which seems a bit out of place but was good fun. Also we enjoyed a snack lunch at the cafe,

It is thoroughly recommended and compared to many other IOW attractions is very good value.

Great little Zoo

Went with a toddler, he had great fun and could walk round it all. Animals looked clean and healthy. It was nice to see a zoo not focused on the big cats for once! Soft play was also great

Nice place for the Kids
Sep 2021
This is a very well laid out park, beautiful birds and animals if you like to cuddle animals this is the place, Lima's and wallabies and be fed by hand and stoked. Lovely for the kids of all ages.

A nice zoo with unusual animals
Sep 2021
Although this is a small zoo it made the best of the space it had. The enclosure didn't seem excessively small and I saw no signs that the animals were unhappy. They have one or two animals not often seen in UK zoos and a fairly large nocturnal area so that animals of the night could be seen doing something other than sleeping. A small criticism is that labelling in the nocturnal area could have been better but overall a very good zoo for its size - we only had around 2 hours to spend and would have liked a little longer.

I think i am done with Zoos
Aug 2021
Unfortunately, I echo the sentiments of a lot of other reviews - I just found this place really sad...I know the effect of COVID will have hit them hard but I just couldn't wait to leave.

The animals don't look happy to be there, the cages don't appear big enough for them and the smell was horrendous...not an animal faeces smell - that's to be expected; it was more of urine that hadn't been cleaned up for months type smell - like a public toilet.

I am sure the staff work damn hard to keep this place going but for me, I wouldn't recommend or return

A lovely zoo with wonderful animals! We loved the bird experience and couldn't stop watching the cute meerkats at the end of the walk.

Small but caring zoo. Great for a visit.
Sep 2021 • Family
We have visited many times before. I understand the reviews about cage space, in comparison to larger zoos it does have smaller spaces. We didn't see any animals pacing or looking unhappy. The keepers obviously really care about the animals and they have stimulation toys and feeds. Many of the animals seem to enjoy human company 'Trumpy' the grey winged trumpeter bird in particular and the wallabies. Staff are very knowledgeable about their animals and friendly. Well worth a visit

Good trip
Aug 2021 • Family
Amazing little place, tropical area was awesome, boa constrictor was moving up the branch ( scary!) and little kids were so excited to see a moving one than curled up inactive snake!
Display Boards with the names of the donors was very encouraging, ice cream at flamingo island was good.
We’ll worth a visit and 7 day free return option is very handy!
