Lovely wildlife park. The animals all appeared healthy and happy, and our toddler loved being able to feed and pat them. The grounds are very nicely maintained and accessible with a stroller. Overall a fun experience for families.

Excellent price ($30 per adult), lovely park, animals appeared happy and well treated, loved the lion cubs and the bonus was we could take as many of our own pics as we wanted!
Def worth a visit and would do again. Limited food on site so if you have special dietry requirements, you may need to bring something to munch. The home-made pumpkin soup with toast was good though.

We have a 4 year old and 2 year old twins and going to unfamilar places can be a handful at times. We found the park very family friendly and engaging for young children. Fences to keep them safe from water hazards but not so high that they couldn't peer over and feed the ducks & fish themselves. The kids loved it so much we stayed all morning then took them away for a nap and came back again in the afternoon to do it all over again. What a family friendly place, under 5's free and the ability to come and go over the course of the day was fabulous.

This is fascinating. The Lion cubs are cute but the rest of the park is the main attraction, interesting and informative and bring an empty bottle as you can top it up with beautiful spring water - free!

Went there mainly for our 3 yo boy; but found entertainment for ourselves. The compound wasn't that big but very natural. We loved feeding the trouts in the stream and drank water directly from the spring using our hands. Another highlight included patting the lion cubs and underwater view of trout pond.
