Price great and visited during the week so we were often alone looking at the animals - peaceful walking around in the sunshine.
We have visited many, many zoo's and animal parks all over the world so feel confident that we have credible feedback to leave for this zoo. It was good to walk around, a pretty zoo and the public are well catered for but its heartbreaking to see huge play areas for kids being built whilst we visited this week yet some of the enclosures for the animals (in fact the majority!) were small, out-dated and in need of knocking down and rebuilding: the mountain goats and the baboons - both in 1960's designed concrete areas with no grass and no fauna. Most of the baboons infact were obviously suffering from some sort of skin problems and many looked red raw.
The larger animals especially: hippo's, rhino and some others were in tiny enclosures and this just wasn't right. This zoo could be a great zoo but why oh why spend so much money on upgrading and building kids play areas when you could be putting this money into the animals!
All this said, they must be doing something right as there were a lot of baby animals, and most seemed in good condition but they need more space!
The panda's were a delight and worth the entrance fee alone.
