Very disappointing. Most enclosures where closed or empty and the animals which were there were shut inside, with exception of the rhinos.
We took our son for his first birthday all the way from Norfolk and we were diapointed given the expense of the tickets and travel.

Fantastic day saw so many of the animals close up, they all look so healthy and so glad that they work to ensure the continuation of the various species

Fantastic day. So good to see the animals seem to have everything they could possibly need for a happy existence as close as it could be to their natural habitat.

The zoo was as good as always but I was not impressed with the new base camp restaurant. The menu was far too limited, the burger was over priced and not great, chips were undercooked. That was after we had to wait for a table. The old cafe was much better, it had a much better selection, including stuff to buy and take away ie sandwiches. The new restaurant is not the right fit for the zoo at all.
