All the pens or cages were in a poor state, everywhere was overgrown and unkempt, an overall feeling of decay, animals were in a sad state. Caffateri was expensive,£1_30 for a small bottle of water. Will not return.

Very disappointing. We visited this park some years ago and it seemed very popular and was very busy. Many of the rarer animals were solitary and of the 2 caracals which had been there, they had been replaced with what appeared to be a single...More

A bit off the beaten track behind Kirkcudbright but a good range of animals you can get up close to and good value. Could do with a little more information when you arrive but we nearly had the place to ourselves on a Monday late...More
