As the title says, we loved the zoo so much (honestly it's great value for money) that we went on the first day and the last day of our holiday - I could have watched the sea lions for hours. Really helpful staff, not too crowded, and not a zoo that you walk your feet off in before you've actually got anywhere.

Although this is a small zoo, there is a lot in it, and definitely worth a visit. Was very impressed

Great place to spend a few hours watching seals, bears, penguins, and leopards. Even at midday on a nice weekend, the park wasn't unbearably crowded.

There's not a lot to see at the zoo, though we did enjoy going round, but our overwhelming feeling was that a lot of the habitats were far too small for the animals. A rude employee in the gift shop didn't help either.

I’d always wanted to visit this zoo since watching Madagascar years ago! There was a large variety of animals to see that were well cared for. We had a brilliant afternoon and thought the entrance fee also offered great value!
