A great place for families with young children as well as overseas visitors. Many new enclosures are either being built, or are to be built. I think once some of the enclosures are upgraded, the sanctuary will be even more beautiful.

Good family option. I would recommend packing a lunch as the café is not flash, also definitely become a Friend of the Sanctuary - two trips in a year and it pays for itself!

We spent the morning at Lone Pine with my toddler and had a ball. Give the shows a miss if you have a baby or toddler as they can't really see what's going on and definitely don't have the patience to sit in one spot...More
