it was a very fun day, a lot of walking and rain but the actual zoo was great lots of great animals to see, there was talks and at points throughout teh day about certain animals where you got to learn more about them and even a part where the penguins were allowed out to walk around for people to watch which was amazing, the pandas penguins hippos and lions were my favourite

We loved the zoo! So many different animals and the views from the hilltop were beautiful. We attended a few of the talks and the staff knew so much about the animals, very impressive. Only disappointment which was a biggie for us, all but one of the restaurants/food places were closed.

Really easy to get to, my partner and I walked from hotel and only took a few mins. Enjoyed the walk around the park, so many ways to go. The food and restaurant are very expensive, paid around £15 for two coffees and bacon sandwich but was to be exspected to be honest. Would recommend to anyone.
