My 11 year old daughter came along for a zookeeper day. What a wonderful place. The staff were wonderful and she had lots of very hands on time with various animals. We will definitely be returning.

What a wonderful micro-zoo, ideal for little ones, nothing too scary. A really worthwhile visit for the family with small children, and of course, if you live in Maidenhead or the surrounds, it's right on your doorstep. Visit their website for open day announcements.

Thank you so much for the lovely review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your visit and once the little ones are a bit older we also offer encounters and Animal Academy so they can get a bit closer to all the animals!

Reviewed 31 July 2018

you can tell the animals here are looked after very well. The grounds are stunning, and the energy is wonderful. Well worth a visit.
