A must see attraction for holidaymakers

Really well designed smaller zoo that will certainly keep the children entertained for half a day. Nice cafe and surroudings which actually feel like being in the Amazon region.

Nice little zoo featuring animals from one continent (hence the name!). You might be disappointed if you're expecting a big zoo with lions and tigers and bears :-) There's a lovely play area for children including two jumping pillows (great fun!) although these may be closed if it has rained a lot recently. The café is small but does a... More

We took our 3 year old daughter for her birthday and had a lovely afternoon with the grandparents. Not to big but lots to do. You get close to the animals, there is an indoor soft play and out door play area with two pillows to jump on.

This zoo, as the name suggests, focuses on the wildlife of the Amazon. It’s one of the few U.K. zoos to have pumas, which is why I, as a cat-lover, wanted to visit. In addition to pumas it has jaguars, ocelots and jaguarundis. These are all easy to see, but their enclosures are made of wire fencing, which unfortunately means... More

We were delighted by our visit to the Amazona Zoo. Even though we live here we have to admit that this part of the world can do 'tacky' and, if we're honest, we feared that this might be a bit underwhelming. We were pleasantly surprised. It isn't London Zoo or Whipsnade, but if you have a young family and want... More

As it's name implies it restricts itself to the Amazon arena but they do present the inhabitants well. Well worth a visit and there is enough to do to make make a day's outing. The childrens' play areas are good and the food in the restaurant caters for most tastes. One visit could be enough to entice you to upgrade... More

While camping in Overstrand we decided to have a day away from the beach, very easy to get to and with 3 kids between 6 and 11, we found the whole experience a great one. All staff we encountered were polite, friendly and very helpful the zoo itself, although not huge has more than enough to keep you entertained and... More

Really enjoyed a half day here with our 2 grandsons. Good playpark filled the gaps between watching a decent variaety of animals. Watching feedingof the moneys and jaguars was a highlight.

Went here with my husband and 6yo daughter during our week long holiday. We had set aside the majority of a day but completed the whole park in an hour and don't feel that the price is justified. It would be more fitting to be advertised as a small wildlife park with tickets costing around £5. The smell of urine... More

We are very sorry to hear you were disappointed by your recent visit. Our Ocelot is a male, and because of this he does have a very strong odour. They mark their territory and although we agree it is a very strong smell, this is completely natural and nothing unclean. All drinking waters in enclosures are changed daily, and pools... More
