"Oh my gosh, where do I start. My husband and I bought our 10 year old Daughter the Extra-Ordinary Animal Experience as a birthday present, she invited a friend to join us. From arriving and meeting Becky our guide the day was epic! We fed elephants, giraffes, lorikeets, tigers, penguins, lemurs. We cuddled meerkats, aardvarks (one of our new favourites) and lemurs. ALL the staff were friendly and extremely knowledgeable and answered all our questions...I highly recommend this experience, you won’t be disappointed!" Emma Louise, May 2018
