A family visit to the wildlife centre was part of our package to the island as a day visit. We did the 10am tour and went back again in the afternoon. The female speaker was so informative. Our kids loved it!More

They may call themselves a wildlife park but there really isn’t that much to see and it’s extremely overpriced. You can walk the entirety within 5-10 min and then it’s over.More

We visited this “zoo” only because we had some time to kill on our last day. This is a small wildlife reserve and you can see all the animals in about 15 minutes. There is nothing interesting or unique about this place.More

The zoo is a fun thing to do for sure but if you have kids, it is much better value to get the mini golf and bowling as a package.More

The zoo itself is very small. It is well run and the animals appear to be well taken care of. I did the cuddle with a Koala and would highly recommend it. Well organized.
