“A FANTASTIC DAY OUT”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

WHAT A GREAT DAY OUT ,If you like to get up close to the animals ,your like it here ,we just love spending time with the gorillas and tigers but lots more to see elephants , rhinos etc ,not cheap to get in but the money is helping keep the park going and helping supporting breeding of endangered animals and getting them back to wild , so by supporting them and having a fantastic day out too your helping save the future of lots of species of animals that could vanish from this world for ever , we had a great day was not busy ,good time to spend looking at all the animals down side some of the food station not open the two main one open so not a problem ,we had a meal later in the main place was ok saved cooking when we got home ,TAKE your camara with you when you make the trip .

“Zoo”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

It was very good. Staff were very polite. Had a very educational day. The animals were lovely and was very tidy. No rubbish around. All the animals were looked after and were being looked after at the time,

“Cool Gorillas”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Loved the gorillas, they were amazing, food was okish. Bit saddened by the big cats that seemed to be in the old bit of the park, under large trees, no sunlight in old wooden cages. Made me quite sad. Everything else was great though. Loved the new tree top walk thing but would have like to see this money spent on the poor cats/monkeys in the old enclosures.
