A great day at the zoo. They are doing lots of improvements so it can only get better. The food choices served in the zoo have also got better. Still lots of fried choices but lets hope they get some healthy choices in the future. A zoo that is well maintained and where the animals are well looked after. Great for families with lots of displays that you can enter and walk through. If you haven't been definitely give it a go.
My kids enjoy watching the animals, if you buy an annual pass it gets you unlimited entry. A good time to go is during the animals feeding time you get to see them in action. It's a big place so I'd recommend spending an entire day so you don't miss out on anything.
Beautiful. Wish all the animals had been there. Sunburned my scalp. Alligators nostrils moved. There were bats. Lemurs were not raccoons and I liked that. The golden tamerins and emus peed and pooed next to me which means they liked me and were comfortable next to me. Emus have weird necks and like water, specifically sprinklers. I was a kiwi whisper, but actually don't say anything near them because they are sensitive to sound. Ostriches are funny. Random chickens. No otters or squirrels.
It was really great however you can get lost so don't leave the kids on their own! Be prepared for quite a long walk if you want to see every animal/species. But really great for kids to learn and experience wildlife. Parking was good if you get their early and what was nice is you can buy your ticket before the gates open and sit/wait in an open area and visit the snack and souvenir shops as well spot a few animals as well.
It's been over 12 years since last visited. Looks pretty. positive is the learner/teacher guides for kids school. Staff in the zoo are lovely. Concern is the cafeteria. Good selection of food (be prepared for pricey as expected), yet wonder how they obtain an A grading for food when you have sparrows flying around the kitchen where food is cooked etc. Is this council run?
