    I would go after lunch we saw the most action (unless you an early morning riser) the lions had just been fed and caused a cool stir with there roaring, most animals were out and about. Some weren't on display at start which was disheartening but we were advised some weren't well

    An amazing place to visit mid morning or lunchtime would be the best time

    No changes to park in years didn't see many animals and those I did lacked stimulating environments not the Orana Park I remember from 10 years ago
