Every thing was well tended and laid out. A lovely visit was had by two oldies. There was nothing to dislike.

Thank murray b

An amazing afternoon spent in this beautiful park. Was simply amazing watching the pack of Lions play all afternoon in the sun then being fed and having a very educational talk by the Lion Keeper on their names, personalities and history of the park. A must see !

I visited with my 2 year old son and we had a great time. Great to get so close to the lions and to be able to interact with a wide range of animals. Easy to navigate around, none of the terrain is too difficult and my boy managed to walk all the way round (including the steps tot he treetop walkway) no problem.
Opportunity to feed animals is good - really enjoyed feeding the wallabies. Putting a wooden bar to prevent the ostrich from stealing food if you choose to sit at "Phil's farm" was a good idea!
Take your time and get your money's worth!
Lion feeding is in the afternoon (1430) and have seen this in the past - very interesting. But going early in the morning when it is quiet and the animals aren't "over it" for the day is good.

Overall it was great but wished they had the lion cubs as advertised. The whole family enjoyed the experence though.

Lions is why I came here. The park and other animals were interesting and it was a nice walk around.

We came in the morning and then returned in the afternoon to see the lions feeding. You can come to the park as many times in the same day as long as you retain the stamp you get.

I was I awe of the lions and how close you can get. I could watch them all day.
