Hadn’t heard about this place before so went there on a whim. Brilliant day out with plenty of animals who are kept extremely well. Plenty of talks at different exhibits and opportunities to do extra paid activities like feeding different animals inside their cages. 100%...More

This little family run zoo is a lovely place to visit. Small and compact it allows you to see the animals at closer range than the larger more commercialised zoos. If you're going there expecting the same as what you would see in a large...More
