We found the staff to be very polite and knowledgeable, the animals all looked healthy and content. There are 4 beautiful orangutans which we were able to feed. They was a large variety of animal life. Fantastic experience.

If you are looking for something like Longleat Safari Park, this isn't it. It is however a collection of animals, some of which are endangered species. The surroundings are a little tired, but with the exception of the sun bears the animals all looked healthy....More

The show involves some macaws, civet and snake. Two shows in a day, i can't be sure of the show timing in the morning, if I remember correctly, it is around 10-11am, in the afternoon it is at 3.15pm.
