Good with what they have Well worth a day out for all the ages. A well set up zoo with many different paths to take. The class animals are there and good viewing points are available of the decent enclosures. Doing a couple of the talks is worth while but otherwise use the map to explore the many different parts of the park. The zoo has its own small train that is worth going on for a little ride to get a different view of the animals. There are some animals that are lacking in quantity but there is normally good reason for this. The park could make more detailed fact cards by the enclosures but there is an app which us worth having on the day. Get there early as its busy even in February.
We were able to get really close to some (less dangerous) animals and enjoyed ourselves walking around. Good facilities for families. The tapir enclosure looked like someones garage or something and the rhino was hiding 'round the back.
