I can confirm a Winter visit is somewhat different to Summer... All the foliage has been cut back for a start to allow for new growth.. this means all the more 'reclusive' animals are easier to spot (although they can still retire away to shelters...More

What a lovely set up. Small but deceptively good and the zoo keepers were friendly, and informative. The cheetah feeding and talk was particularly good. Really close experiences to the animals too. We spent a lovely (but rather chilly) few hours here.

A truly fantastic experience for all animal lovers and especially children. Lots of different animals including Cheetahs, Jaguars and a variety of different Monkeys. There's a cafe and shop and a picnic area with children's playground. Everything you need for a relaxing day out.
