Lovely lovely day out with the kids! Worth coming along to for the talks and interactions with the animals. All the animals seem very happy and healthy which I love to see. I am really glad I came back the lions were really putting in a display today! Highly recommended and all at good prices too
Even though I'd read about the zoo before going I was pleasantly surprised to find it exceeded expectation. It still has that laid back vibe but has some amazingly exotic animals including lions, tigers and monkeys! The signs on each enclosure were informative and eye catching. Thanks for such a lovely morning out!
