Awesome place to take family and friends! Visited for the first time during the holidays and enjoyed the range of animals you get to see, fed the giraffes and got lots of sun and walking time in. Highly recommend this park.
Pretty impressed with the range of animals and cleanliness of the cages. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes as the park is spread out. Restaurant coffee average and food descent, I was disappointed at the pricing of food as it's above the norm for chch. That said though an enjoyable couple hours out.
We have a yearly pass to Orana Park for our family this year and absolutely love going. The park is tidy, well laid out and has large enclosures for the animals. Our favourite exhibit is the gorillas, they’re just amazing to watch.
Such a huge zoo lots of animals to look at but one day is not enough to see all of them but feeding the giraffe and lion encounter is one of my favorite its such a fun day a nice place for whole family educational and very informwtive
A wonderful open air zoo. Not your traditional zoo at all, the animals have lots of wide, open spaces. It's a big park so make sure you wear comfy shoes and take the shuttle/buggy if you have little legs. Cafe onsite but you can take your own food. Definitely go and follow the schedule so you can hand-feed giraffes, farm animals etc. The new primate enclosure is wonderful. A great family day out.
Went here last weekend. Big walk for little legs so take a pram or use the shuttle service. Kids loved the animals. Definitely worth taking your own lunch setting up at one of the picnic tables and spending the day there. We tried to do it between nap times and found we didn't have enough time as the park is huge. Gorillas, meerkats were a hit. But the biggest fav of the day was the cheeky keas. Kids loved that they would come sit on your head.
Excellent Zoo, and a great place to see a range of animals.The animals are in large enclosures and look happy and well cared for, much better than some of the other zoo's I've been to. I especially like that they have a shuttle for tired little legs. A bit expensive to go too often, but well worth the trip.
Always offers a great day at for the family and the kids love it. Decent size wild life park to explore. Offers good parking and some giod lunch food available to. The shuttles around the park are hany and the interactive stuff is great especially for the kids like feeding the gariffes. Pricing for entry is pretty and staff hav been friendly on the couple of visits iv done to the park.
Fantastic place to go for a family day out. Great range of animals, and if you plan your day you can see them all getting feed at various times of the day. Nice walkways and paths conveniently linking the various parts of the park, alternatively you could take the free shuttle around the park. Great playground, my kids love the trampoline. The cafe is really nice, and even has prepacked "lunch box"type meals for the kids which always go down a treat.
Fabulous place to take the kids to.
Lots of animals to see. Great playground.
Love the free shuttle that takes your around and the driver talks about the animals.
Staff are so friendly and come and to you to chat about the animals you are looking at!
A little steep in price. A place that you definitely want to visit a few times and take the time to wander around looking at the animals. There is heaps to see. Everyone loved the lions and giraffes. Kids enjoyed riding the little train thing. Lots of parking too.
Used to always enjoy coming here as a child and really looked forward to taking my toddler this week. The new gorilla enclosure is amazing but it was very unfortunate that the park was very empty. Multiple enclosures were closed and there was a time were we walked for about five minutes without seeing any animals. Also starting to look very run down. Definitely not what it used to be but still worth a visit. A little bit over priced for what it is at the moment, I think a lot more people would visit if it was more affordable.
Took my grandchildren to orana park for the day,there is so much too see,everyone loved the lions and giraffes,good price for the level of animals to view,kids enjoyed riding the little train/cart thing,really need to come a few times to see everything
I love coming to Orana Park to see the animals with my daughter. It can get very busy during the holidays so arrive early for a close park. Prices have started getting a bit steep but understandable considering how much maintenance and animal care must cost. A tip - take your own food, whilst the cafe is nice it's expensive as there's no competition
