It is a very big Zoo. The safari bus is a great experience, but there is a lot of walking and sometimes the animals are sleeping or can't be found as they are under trees or bushes. As an adult with patience to look I found that our 5 & 6 year olds were wanting to move on if the particular animal wasn't in view. Easy to get to and lots of parking.The Staff are extremely friendly and very helpful.

Aside from the weather being so windy and cold and the rain a little it was fun a good day for the kids , The only thing was the cafe inside was elaborate huge meals no snack stuff and the outside ran out of mostly everything. The safari cruise was awesome ....

The safari experience was quite unique - open air travel through the park, across the different animal settlements - animals are just inches from you atimes. The zoo part was a bit anti-climatic though. With so much unused land area observed, it's possible further expansion may occur at some point.
