We enjoyed our afternoon in the Zoo, hadn’t been there for a long time and the improvements in living conditions for the animals is great to see. Highlight for me was the seal’s wave pool. One thing hasn’t changed though which I find exacerbating; quite a few parents incapable or unwilling to control their screaming, over exuberant kids and teach them respect for other animals. It does take away some of the enjoyment of the day for me and others.

My partner and I loved the zoo the staff and zoo keepers are really lovely and patient and they are so loving towards the animals we got to watch the zoo keeper maintain and care for the elephants they washed there feet and made sure they were okay. They have animals talks throughout the day We loved it we were at the zoo from 8:45am waiting for the gates to open at 9am we finished for the day at 3:30pm made the most of the day.
