About average is all I can say. The animals all looked well and cared for which is most important. However it is nothing special I am afraid and there are better animal parks out there. My children enjoyed it all the same and that is...More

I don't, no.
Can you improve the quality of food and service in the Safari Restaurant. One person serving at Lunch time .Dirty tables and slow service. No knives available and the food was unacceptable cold .Several people complaining . Some could not get served at all. Attitude of Manager when he arrived was sullen. Needs immediate action to improve both Management and staff training
