  • Clean zoo, animals well cared for and plenty of space for them. Elephant and giraffe expert was brilliant, explaining its a rescue zoo committed to conservation and breeding programmes. Really enjoyed the day, good value too and a really lovely restaurant with good choice of food, and excellent service
