  • This zoo is pretty good. The size of the enclosures are great and the animals seem pretty well loved. The staff are lovely and despite the heat and lack of people about they were very friendly and chatty while feeding the animals. My only disappointment was that the kiosk and a large section of the zoo was under construction at the time we went but it was just after school holidays went back so it was probably the only time they could do it. Overall it was a great experience.
  • Was an amazing experience. Food was beautiful. Accommodation was fantastic. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The night safari was good and the early morning safari was amazing, we got to feed some animals. Highly recommended this zoo. 👍👌
