Great Zoo, nicely spaced out and easy to get around with a pram with a lot of other people there. Animals all looked pretty happy and content so are looked after well.

The zoo is very well laid out, and truly a lovely walk around it through trees and bush. The animals appear well looked after, and have large enclosures with differing areas for them to use, and you to see them from. Clean and well maintained....More
