What an awesome day for our first time as a family. We arrived about 930am and went straight to the safari tour we where on the first 10am bus. Definitely worth getting there early and doing that first at it takes about 45 mins. With young kids you have limited time with happy babies. The drum music was awesome great interactive activity for our girls cant wait to use our zoo membership more!
A great place to take the family and enjoy some of natures greatest animals. Be sure to go as early as possible as it can get very crowded on weekends or public holidays. The best part is taking the safari bus, which allows you to get up and close with some of the animals. Fun for all ages
