The Zoo has a roadtrain that takes you around the park and gives you more information on some of the animals and also has The Mighty Zulu Nation Troupe performing twice a day. Sadly we missed most of the performance and couldn't wait until 3pm for the 2nd show but they looked and sounded amazing.
As well of the large African animals there is also farm corner and a small play area.
The Zoo opens at 9.30 each day but closing times vary depending on the time of year so check the website. Parking is FREE. As the Zoo is a charity they do ask for a small donation and gift aid.

Overall I think the Zoo is nice but due to the size not great value for a family of four. If you take a picnic and watch the show and go to the daily feeding talks you may be able to comfortably extend your stay. It was lovely seeing the animals and it clearly is a very cared for environment. I would recommend but I'd plan my visit differently to get the most out of it.
