“Can't do this at home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

When we went the lions were too big (9 months) to handle much, but even the little ones could pat them through a cage) which was still great. Plenty of other animals, ducks chasing you, huge fish to feed. Good fun. Plenty of trinkets but food wasn't much.

“Awesome”

I have been here often, awesome experience to pat a lion cub, a must place to visit, and the rest of the park is so relaxing walking through bush with heaps of other animals along the way

“What a beautiful park....even better if they have cubs!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

We had a great day here...my mum, niece and her little girl! The grounds are beautiful so well kept...the animals are all healthy and happy! Throughly enjoyed our visit here and I think the price is pretty reasonable! If you are local you ring and check when they have cubs there and you can pat the cubs for free :D

“Exciting to pat a Lion cub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

A great range of animals. We particularly enjoyed the Lion feeding and the Lion cub patting. The keepers were very informative.
