Great place to take children, they will be talking for hours afterwards, the cafe is very expensive, best to go elsewhere afterwards

Impressed with the design of many of the enclosures, particularly for the tigers, rhinos, and red pandas! Well kept walkways and great signage along with announcements on speakers for where the talks would be happening. We managed to get to the talk on the tigers,...More

A fantastic little zoo, and not too expensive to go to. The animals are all in great condition, and the staff are super friendly and helpful. Our favourite part was getting to feed the giraffes. The cafe makes a great coffee too.

Had a great morning here, beautiful park & good variety of animals. We timed it well as the animals were being fed (mid morning) so they were very active which is always a bonus!

Our young family had a pleasant experience and the activity filled in an afternoon for us. Rhino and giraffe herds are impressive. We had meals from the onsite cafe which were reasonably priced and satisfactory.

We visited the zoo after a day trip to Hamilton. It has large enclosures and the up close experiences you can have with the animals are great. We are definitely going to return
