You should plan on a full day out here to fully experience everything. There are signs saying that outside food and drink are not allowed but I would say sneak some in as the prices for food and drink are really expensive and they had one restaurant closed for a private party so there was limited places to get a bite to eat.
The admission prices are a bit high but worth the price for a full day out and the fact that some of the mechanical rides were included in the price. There was a sealion show on whist we were visiting which cost an additional $2 per person the show was good but the admission including use of two inflatable slide things which once inside after paying the $2 each we were told that they were closed due to high winds, this was a big disappointment to my 5 year old and I think they could of told us of this beforehand or lowered the $2 price.
There are some great experiences to encounter the animals up close and personal like having a picture with sealions and the sealions either rest on your head or shoulder and feeding giraffes amongst others. Of course there is a charge for this and they take pictures to try to get you to purchase them which can be pricey but all the money raised goes back into the zoo. Overall it was a great day out with some experiences you could only get there but I would say I was a bit disappointed with the safari ride. I found it a but dull and boring and sometimes difficult to see the animals and my husband who was in his mobility scooter and had said he was happy to transfer was actually put on the ramp and made to stay in his mobility scooter which meant he couldn't see anything on the safari as he had a big ramp in his way. This matter needs addressing. I think they should allow you to take your own food and drink and have a little picnic area for you to eat in as most places do this and I was supprised to see the zoo didn't
