It is a great park and well worth a visit. Unfortunately, we visited on the busiest day they had had, for a very long time - and so there was a long wait to get on the Safari Bus and to purchase drinks etc. Given we were also trying to be COVID safe, there were large gatherings at viewing spots as well, with little consideration given to social distancing. We will plan to visit another time when school has returned and during the week - to take full advantage of a great park. So good seeing animals in their natural habitat.

Awesome day!

My family and I had the best time! We were also fortunate enough on the safari bus to have the animals come SUPER close! Awesome experience. A lot of walking, so make sure to wear comfy shoes and pack a yummy picnic as there is a nice part in the zoo to sit and enjoy lunch.

Absolutely wonderful best school holiday day out.

Fantastic kids entry is free during the school holidays makes a very affordable day out. We had a picnic under the shady trees near the kids play ground. The safari tour is a must and absolutely brilliant you are really transported to the plains of Africa with a no cages experience seeing so many magnificent animals roaming.
