We took our 7 year old daughter and she loved it. It is quite small with lots of trout/ducks...but also lions! The lions are fed at 2.30 each day and this is the best time to see them as they are lively and patrolling!

We took our granddaughters on a very warm summer's day. Arrived in time to see the lion feeding, which was a highlight. A leisurely stroll through the bush to feed the ducks, goats, wallabies and trout followed.
