Local and exotic animals are neighbors at Drusillas Park, where you'll also find a variety of hands-on activities. Although the animal population of the zoo grows every year, the zoo's policy is to house only small creatures. This policy is meant to appeal to the younger children who frequent the zoo for its educational activities and adventure play area with swings, slides, and an indoor soft play center. A large variety of primates populate the trees within the zoo: Capuchin monkeys, Colobus monkeys, macaques, and Lar gibbons.

Had a fantastic day out with my 2 year old. The animals are clearly well cared for and the whole experience was great. Soft play was a huge hit and the rides were suitable for all ages. Can't wait to visit again!
This is a great day out for kids. Food is pricey but they have a large picnic area. Educational and fun, lots of outdoor space for the kids to run about, great that the rides are included in the entrance fee, love the lemur walk through, but some of the enclosures look like they could do with some updating and expansion.
