We really enjoyed visiting this zoo, although it was small, there were lots of animals to look at, activities to do and plenty of opportunities to feed the animals. We all loved it.

We absolutely loved this place! Small and privately run this zoo has a real charm and the set up for the animals was great. We hand fed Lemurs and Wallaby and had a great time all round.
