I first went to South lakes Animal park quite a few years ago and this now holds a very special place in my heart. I live over 4 hours drive away but have taken both of my Children and will be a visiting again and again. The first time i visited I thought is was amazing, seeing the Giraffes galloping in there huge grassed area made it for me. It just gets better with every visit. The Animals are mixed if they can be not segragagted like most other animal parks or Zoos. The space the animals have it so good. How many places can you feed Giraffes or Penguins daily amongst other animals. Anyone that has been a keeper for the day would also say what a great experience this is. The amount of work they do for conservation is just unbelievable. All the money goes to the cause not being spent on cuddly toys so every penny is used.
The cafe is very spacious and overlooks the giraffes enclosure. Rain or shine i love this place.
I have read the appaling review by Olivia N and am shocked.
Don't take my word for it visit and make your own mind up Im sure you will not be dissapointed.
Have a great trip.
