Zoo it self was great and very interesting. The workshop was very basic for what we are paying for, although engaging didn't add to the trip. The workshop was just a room for students to touch animal skins, was mostly adult run by the school. Was almost as if paying for the room. (March 2022 - Primary School)




Students had a great time, some kiosks were not open as we visited during off-peak season but this allowed the students more time to explore all the zoo had to offer. (March 2022 - Secondary School)




Staff took emergency contact details on arrival. We were welcomed quickly and efficiently as we came into the zoo. Staff around the zoo were friendly and answered all questions made by the children. (March 2022 - Primary School)
