I think i am done with Zoos
Aug 2021
Unfortunately, I echo the sentiments of a lot of other reviews - I just found this place really sad...I know the effect of COVID will have hit them hard but I just couldn't wait to leave.

The animals don't look happy to be there, the cages don't appear big enough for them and the smell was horrendous...not an animal faeces smell - that's to be expected; it was more of urine that hadn't been cleaned up for months type smell - like a public toilet.

I am sure the staff work damn hard to keep this place going but for me, I wouldn't recommend or return

Lovely zoo

A lovely zoo with wonderful animals! We loved the bird experience and couldn't stop watching the cute meerkats at the end of the walk.

Small but caring zoo. Great for a visit.
Sep 2021 • Family
We have visited many times before. I understand the reviews about cage space, in comparison to larger zoos it does have smaller spaces. We didn't see any animals pacing or looking unhappy. The keepers obviously really care about the animals and they have stimulation toys and feeds. Many of the animals seem to enjoy human company 'Trumpy' the grey winged trumpeter bird in particular and the wallabies. Staff are very knowledgeable about their animals and friendly. Well worth a visit

Good trip
Aug 2021 • Family
Amazing little place, tropical area was awesome, boa constrictor was moving up the branch ( scary!) and little kids were so excited to see a moving one than curled up inactive snake!
Display Boards with the names of the donors was very encouraging, ice cream at flamingo island was good.
We’ll worth a visit and 7 day free return option is very handy!

Brilliant time
Aug 2021 • Friends
Loved this little zoo, which had a lot more to see than other reviews would lead you to believe. Particularly enjoyed the walkthrough wallabies area where you could get up close and feed them. Saw all sorts of animals I hadn’t seen before (eg ocelot, red panda). There is quite an extensive indoor area too, which came as a surprise. Spent a really enjoyable afternoon here.

Nice morning trip
Sep 2021 • Family
Revamped in areas since we last visited. Great for preschool children, our son loved it. Spent about 2 hours here.

A few empty cages but all in all lots of animal variety, animals were fed whilst there which made it even more enjoyable. You can also hand feed wallabies or throw the fish some food for £1 each.

Play area outside, a few picnic benches if taking own food or there's a cafe.

An enjoyable morning visit.

A very sad place.
Aug 2021 • Family
Very very disappointed with this visit. Not only were there so few animals, and only 1 or 2 of note…..but there was a very sad air about the whole place. I know it’s a zoo, but I have become accustomed to these establishments operating more as a sanctuary, this was very far from this. Concrete and glass boxes housing animals that did not seem stimulated at all.
Was not worth the entry fee and would not recommend, even when looking for something to do when the weather lets you down.

The advert is misleading somewhat
Aug 2021 • Family
The attraction had an air of neglect but hardly surprising after the global events of the past 18+months.

Staff were friendly and helpful.

It is a zoo with small animals.

An outside area and inside.

The indoor play was still shut and the outdoor play was small and basic.

We did not use the cafe

We used tesco vouchers to get in

The place was clean

But not enough to do for more than 2 hours.

Depressing
Aug 2021 • Family
I understand that this is a zoo and that means looking at animals in cages, but boy, was this place depressing. So many of the cages were far too small, many of the animals were repetitively pacing (the ocelot, armadillos, even the sloth believe it is not). There were turtles and snakes in tiny tanks which my six year old was able to identify were too small without prompting. The flamingos were in a concrete cell, and one of them was clearly distressed by the humans staring at them. I've been to some excellent zoos (Marwell and Drusillas spring to mind) but Amazon World is over-priced, depressing and best avoided. The only positive is that the staff (although not spotted anywhere around the zoo other than the lemur enclosure) were lovely on the front entrance and gift shop, so a big well done to them!
