Got to say we loved our visit here and want to come back already. Great place, animals look happy and healthy. Stunning rhinos and amazing to get so close to the goats and giraffes. Only sad part is how small the bird enclosures are. Really...More

The weather was on our side when we went. The sun meant all the animals were out where you could see them. The feeding talks were informative and interesting, especially the giraffe feed. There are lots to do and the park is pretty big so...More

It was a nice place to visit and we were only staying down the road so that was handy. I found it odd that the rhino was housed in a unit which had a huge elephant statue outside, but there weren't any elephants in the...More

Staying close buy with our Grandchildren of 10 and 7. Arrived early, only a small queue, had a great time. Animals all well cared for, clean and tidy, staff very helpful and informative. Feeding time for the otters and meerkats was a delight.

We recently visited Lowestoft and wanted something to do on a free day. Unfortunately the zoo was great but not much was open because of the time of year, we felt they should do discounted tickets for this. Otherwise it nice enough.More

Hi, Christina. Thank you for posting your review. I am sorry if you felt that we didn't meet up to your expectations, more so as I do not recognise your comment that 'not much was open'. All of our animals are visible either in their...More

Had seen previous reviews and with a 10 yr old and a 13 yr old, thought they may be too old. However, we all had an awesome day. To be honest, when we first got there and walked through the bird section, I thought we...More

Wow, beautiful park well maintained. Lots to do, plenty of feedings and talks to see. Lots of staff around all seemed friendly and approachable, animals seemed happy and well looked after with plenty of room and things to do. Blown away by the lion pride.

Hi, Thanks for your question. Regretfully No. As a zoo, our priority is the animals in our care so no dogs are permitted.
