I’m giving this 3 stars as the front looked amazing but we did not actually go into the zoo due to the billions of mosquitoes that nearly lifted my family and I up into orbit. If you visit here BRING REPELLENT!!!!!!

Great free attraction for families. Chanced upon a chimpanzee ranger and enjoyed talking about the chimp behaviour. Would have liked to have more interaction with staff.

Would have been good to be able to purchase feed bags to be able to feed the Kangaroos and the other roaming animals. Great little zoo for families with small children to get up close to see some of the animals.

Good variety of animals, roomy enclosures. The animals are well cared for and well worth a visit. Lots of open spaces so a bit tricky if it is raining, this also brings out the bugs.

We visited with our boys (10 & 13) and all thoroughly enjoyed it. Saw pretty much everything on offer, except for the chimps who were having their enclosure cleaned. All of the animals looked well cared for. Didn’t stay for any of the keeper’s talks...More
