Thanks for comments and we're pleased your family enjoy visiting us. Your son is quite right. Where food treats are concerned our wonderful wildlife residents are very tuned into keeper talk timings and meal times!

A great day out, with talks every half hour, where the keepers feed the animals, so you can get very close. Plenty to see and an opportunity to see much of the native fauna, which you are unlikely to see in the wild. Brilliant.More
