£25 for a family of 4 is tremendous value for this excellent park. Great variety of animals and wow you can get close to them - a monkey pinched my daughters sandwich in the picnic area lol.

Would recommend this park to anyone for a 1/2 day trip. Its easy to find, easy to park, easy to navigate around and the staff are excellent.

I recently spent a day as a keeper. Only one word can express my day - FANTASTIC. Very friendly staff with no pressure to do what they want. All down to my requests. Thanks to Mark, I now have a favourite big cat. The Snow Leopard.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful and prepared to go "The extra mile" to make it a special day and it most certainly was.
If you haven't done this yet, you should.

Many, many thanks for a memorable day.

Peter Likeman.

Always a great day out & good value for money. Lots of animals to see & plenty of wildlife roaming free around the park which is a good experience. Highly recommended.
