Very modern Zoo, with all the animals of Africa plus more to view. Great aquarium, and lion den. Kids will love the play centre, and if the kids get tired the golf carts will do the trick. Tranquil setting under the trees to enjoy your lunch. Moneys worth.

The animals have lots of space. The undulating landscaped terrain gives surprises around every corner of the shady meandering paths

Very little waitng time to get in and well worth the price. A little crowded with lots of school groups but didn't spoil the day as the zoo is very spacious. A massive variety of animals ( the okapi was a personal favourite) There is a lot of walking so would reccomend hiring a golf cart if with older adults or small children. Plenty of places to stop and get drinks/ snacks. The only place i was a lillte dissapointed with was the gift shop as it was very small and had limited products. But all in all a fantastic day out.

It is really very educational and a must for children to visit when in the area.
