  • Great Zoo, such friendly staff particularly Steve the road train driver (not his actual title), lots to see learn and do. Stamp collecting worked really well for the children. Displays and feeding talks were excellent. Volunteers on hand to answer your questions and count lemurs in the walk through lemur enclosure who clearly loved their role.
  • A stunning conservationist zoo where the animals all look to be happy and healthy. Some animals you can see quite close up. The staff who did the displays were clearly bonded with the animals which was lovely. The talks were also really interesting. I also loved that many of the shop items were charitable and were not overpriced.
