I went here a few years ago and was a bit disappointed, but went again last month and was really impressed with how it’s changed.
The wildlife park has a really large variety of animals so there’s bound to be something for everyone there. The enclosures are all spacious and the animals look well cared for.
The first part we went through was the walled garden and the layout was slightly confusing, so we weren’t sure if we’d seen everything. One area not to miss is the Madagascar lemur area, where you actually go into the enclosure where the lemurs are and can get really close to them. Very exciting!
The main part of the park is easier to navigate and there’s also a train that takes you round past the prairy areas (rhinos and zebra)
There are also big cats, monkeys, fruit bats, insects, reptiles, a fun petting zoo with goats (my favourites!), and lots more.
The park is beautifully landscaped and there is a large play area for kids. We ate at the restaurnat, which was not too expensive, but there are also lots of picnic areas.
The aprk seems quite expensive, especially for a family, but we spent the whole day there with my older kids (aged 11 and 15) and I’m sure younger children would enjoy it even more.
