  • A very nice park. All the animals have lots of room in very large multiple enclosures. Not like Edinburgh Zoo which houses their animals in enclosures too small for them (IMO). All the animals look very well looked after, as does the whole place. Plenty of places to eat and lots of toilets dotted around the whole park. Best wildlife park I've been too.
  • Lovely wildlife park, easy to get to, plenty of parking and the animals are beautiful with lots of space. This was our second visit and we've now made a challenge for ourselves to see the Armadillo's as both times we've been they weren't out. We will see them one day I'm sure. Plenty of picnic seating for your own food and also plenty of cafes/eating places. Highly recommend this beautiful park and they are also on expanding it so I look forward to seeing even more on our next visit. Keep up the good work ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚
