I would go after lunch we saw the most action (unless you an early morning riser) the lions had just been fed and caused a cool stir with there roaring, most animals were out and about. Some weren't on display at start which was disheartening but we were advised some weren't well

Fantastic park run by awesome staff. All the animals look so healthy and happy. Well done by all the managers and staff. Had an awesome lunch at the cafe, so friendly and helpful. Will recommend to all my friends

I haven't been since I was a little girl and I got to take my own daughters this time. My almist 3 year old was over the moon that she got to feed a girraffe and watch the lions have some lunch !

Great day. Great weather. Sad the ground was so dry and no grass growing. All staff were great. It would be neat to be able to buy a little picture book with details about the park to take away

An amazing place to visit mid morning or lunchtime would be the best time
