A great day out with many animals to view. Has a wee train that goes around so if you need a break you can jump on and off

We really wanted to see the gorillas and we weren't disappointed. It was a relatively busy day which was great to see. They could do with some philanthropist to give them a few million so they can pave the paths all the way around and put more rubbish/recycle bins in, seating etc.

Couldn't believe how much this zoos poor condition it was in. Nothing was defined. The enclosures where boring with over grown grass. Nothing was manicured and kept nice. All looked like a dry riverbed.

Spent 4 hours at the Park. It was a beautiful sunny spring like day also.
Park grounds are looking a bit tired but suspect they are just waking up from winter!
Cant imagine the budget it would take to keep the place, animals and staff in tact.
Nice to see some Corporate Sponsors, but there is room for heaps more.
Delight of the day for me was hand feeding the giraffes. It was a wonderful experience
and don't need to go to Africa to do this now!
Several areas seemed to be empty or closed. Some kind of signage would be nice.
also more road signage and directions on roads leading into such a great Tourist attraction. Don't quite understand why there is nit more Official Tourist signage as some people who don't know its there would miss out on it.
A day well spent and value for money.

We did the Lion Encounter which I highly recommend. Zookeepers are friendly and caring to the animals and were able to feed them by hand. An unreal experience!

The park is quiet and really peaceful to walk around. Recommend following the tour to get the most of your day.
