A wildlife park hidden out of the way; seemingly untouched my the world around it. Our visit here was very enjoyable, with a range of animals to see from Lemur’s, to monkey’s and even zebra’s! Even with the rain we still had a good time....More

This was a nice place to visit for my daughters 2nd birthday. She’s loved seeing the monkeys and all the African animals. The outside areas for the animals are massive so they have plenty of space to wander around and there is a wide variety...More
