Really great day out for kids. Low of walking for little ones no longer in Prans so it’s worthwhile bringing a scooter. Recommend doing Asia part first rather than Africa as there’s Mir to see for younger kids.

Great day for my daughter's birthday. Haven't visited for many years, be prepared for lots of walking. Just one problem on a very hot day some of the eating areas closed early and we ran out of water. Had to wait for over an hour for a drink when we eventually got back to the visitor centre. Drinking water should be available at all toilet areas it's not a hard thing to provide.
