“Apt name - wild animals to view up a mountain”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

Loved the way it was intergrated in with the topography - but it's not the place to go if its wet & windy! Fortunately, there is a cafe with a view.
The Zoo concentrated on a range of smaller animals e.g. Meercats, and birds; and did that very well.
Directions to get there could have been better.

“Bad weather meant we got really close”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

We had a great time here as you really can get close to the animals - the penguin parade was brilliant on the grass. The pouring rain and wind meant we were one of about 10 people on New Year's day but that made it even better for us. Lovely setting and just a great day out
