We visited today and although it was freezing cold we had a fabulous day! This zoo has got something that any other zoo I've ever visited hasn't come close to!
I cannot praise the keepers enough, all of them were absolutely fabulous! Very engaging and fun! The hands on sessions were such a wonderful addition to our day, something I've not seen at any other zoo either! We met Damien the grumpy adolescent Alpaca and stroked him and we stroked 'Little' the no so small snake!
There was a young chap taking part in a 'keeper for the day' experience (what a cracking idea!) and we were able to listen to the keeper talk about the Meerkats (we were introduced to Tripod with his dinky tail!) and also the Reindeer (including Boggle the unicorn wannabe!) and we learnt so, so much! We also loved the penguin talk (Curtains, Percy and Grandma Buster were absolutely gorgeous!) and can't wait to come back later in the year to hopefully see some babies as they currently have a couple of eggs being incubated!
I advise anyone who visits to take full advantage of the fabulous experiences and knowledge the keepers have and are so willing to share with you!
We had food in the cafe, which wasn't great, we'd probably take a pack up next time!
Other than that our day was most definitely memorable! We will definitely be back!
Thank you fabulous keepers!
