  • By far the best zoo I have ever visited. Whilst it was exceptionally dry, all the exhibits were great, and it was so pleasing to see such large, expansive enclosures, giving the animals room to roam.....  more »
  • Kids loved the zoo. Saw all the animals and listened to all the keeper talks and feeds - all were very informative. Walked between most animal enclosures - otherwise drove around. Excellent picnic...  more »

  • Great zoo, good mix of animals, with plenty to keep the kids entertained. We were a bit unsure, but you can (and is normal to) drive your own car around inside the zoo. A lot of families ride their own bikes around, but we were quite rudely told that scooters were not allowed. The food and drink pricing was pretty standard but cans of soft drink were astronomical.
  • We experienced 2 wonderful days at TWP Zoo recently, staying overnight at Zoofari Lodge. Accommodation was stylish and comfortable, dinner at The Guesthouse with our fellow travellers was delicious as it was generous. Thank you Chef John Sullivan. The staff are lovely. Absolutely world class. Looking forward to our next visit.
