"My wife Kim and I visited the zoo on 21st May this year for an elephant experience and a day in the zoo itself. The elephant keepers were brilliant and gave us such a thrill with their at attentive style and all of your staff from reception, to train driver, to catering were marvellous. Kim had a great birthday day out and I would like to thank you all for your efforts and in particular the elephant team who looked after us both so well. You really run a very special place with animal welfare clearly at the heart of everything you do. Chris and Kim Edmonds, Hove, East Sussex
