We love this zoo. We go every few years and there’s always something new.
The horse and cart tours are at the same time as feeding so you get to see all the animals pretty closely and the tour guides are friendly and full of...More
We went on a tour and it was great as we got to see the animals up nice and close. It’s definitely well worth the drive and we were there for around 3-4hours, we did take our own lunch as there isn’t a cafe.
Have driven past several times and never stopped. So glad we did this time. A 2 1/2 hour horse drawn cart ride with a very informative young lady who told us about the many different animals on display. Coffee and biscuits at the end of...More
We had a great time. All animals were visible and active because it was feeding time at the same time as the tour. Guides were well-educated and happy to share. The story of the zoo's inception and development is inspirational. Great to be able to...More

We have just spent the morning with Jordan on a feed the animals viewing. There was only the two of us on the 9.30 am tour so we were very lucky to have what felt like our own private guide. I learnt so many facts...More

The youngest staff members are 17yrs and 19yrs old. Both of these staff members are trainees. Animal training is very intense and can take different amounts of time for each specific staff member both young and old depending on the individuals prior experience, personality, commitment and of course common sense. General animal work is learnt within about 3 months (feeding animals at troughs and cleaning enclosures to high standards) but majority of high risk tasks and carnivore work can take up to 2yrs to learn. Tour training is also dependant on the individual with motorised and mini zoo talks being learnt within a year but horse driving can be any number of years depending on prior experience and the ability to read the horse they are driving. All training is supervised carefully by fully qualified keepers in each field. Age is just a number really with dedication and love for animals a must!
