Lovely lovely day out with the kids! Worth coming along to for the talks and interactions with the animals. All the animals seem very happy and healthy which I love to see. I am really glad I came back the lions were really putting in a display today! Highly recommended and all at good prices too

Thanks for such a lovely morning out!
