A fantastic zoo to visit! We love seeing the various animals, they are adorable and they look very happy and very well cared for! The organization of the zoo is very good and has an excellent store to buy a souvenir.

We were delighted to find the zoo is open throughout the year. We listened to a great talk about the bats. Thoroughly enjoyable visit. Cafe was quite expensive. Bus service is very frequent.

Went on a very cold, quiet January day. There was more than enough to see to keep us occupied the whole day, and we followed the animal talks around the park. If you're not into zoos that's fine, but I'd class this more as a...More

Jersey zoo is a conservation park so you won’t find giraffes or elephants here but you will see Andean bears and plenty of other wonderful creatures. It’s a peaceful place with plenty to learn for adults and children alike. It isn’t the cheapest place to...More
