Really enjoyed the zoo. Last time I went I was 6 so 20 years so was great to go back. Would of loved more animals (no elephants and only tigers and lions) overall a good day.
A fantastic day visiting with a school group. Upon arrival, lots of school groups had turned up at the same time and it was a bit hectic and very busy but once we all split up around the zoo it was fine. We particularly enjoyed walking with the lemurs who were incredibly friendly!
