This place was a great find. They had a wide variety of animals and the staff was very friendly. If you decide to drive yourself, get some detailed directions. The place was hard to find.

Our family (boys 10 and 11) loved Philips. It was great to walk around and feed the animals. So many favourites ie goats, piglets, Peter the monkey. Animals seem to be in good care. We basically had the place to ourselves. Would highly recommend
