  • Amazing place staff are doing a great job went round many times and loads to see that you may have missed. Staff go the extra mile Justin one of the keepers finished work after park closed pulled up and asked if we needed a lift as had missed the last bus. We were not waiting for the bus but very kind of him. It really is a must visit spent a lot of time photographing the big cats and loved it stayed from open to close. The food was out of this world I recommend the cheese and bacon burger was cooked to perfection. Will definitely visit again very soon thank you to all the staff.
  • We were lucky enough to get tickets to Dartmoor Zoo's Christmas light evening. We go a few times a year normally. Loved the effort the team have gone to, lots of covid safe measures in place and lots of friendly staff on hand. Would highly recommend going!!
