Wonderful zoo. Lots to see. The animals are well cared for & looked happy & content. Visitors can stroke the animals & feed them (giraffes, zebras, lamas, goats etc). My children & I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Well worth a visit.

There were plenty of toilets and food/drink stops and the range of animals was great. Everything appeared clean and well tended, all in all a fantastic day out and well worth the price.
