Wonderful place to visit and spend time. I was lucky enough to actually feed a lion cub and have a play and cuddle. Great way to experience the New Zealand nature, plant life and lush greenery. Also saw the lions at feeding time - a little scary, but still cool. Love immersing myself in nature.
Absolutely wonderful experience!
The lion feeding and kea feedings are amazing to watch , the staffs knowledge is fantastic and very friendly customer service
They have ample car parks and a small gift store too.
The lions have a huge area and the staff talk you through all their individual personalities and names / ages during the feeding talk. It’s well worth the money and definitely something fun for all the family
Great fun place to take the Family. Get to be up close to the animals and feed most of them. Enjoyable day out. However I wish their cafe was bigger and did meals.
My youngest was little scared of Lions first while they were being feed, but soon was wanting to get a closer look. Only down side was the size of the cafe and limited things on offer, but otherwise very good day out.
this is a fantastic place to visit. the admission fee isn't cheap but well worth it. the kids will get to see a wide range on animals witht the focus being on the big cats. they even have the option for individuals to get in with the cubs at no extra charge, unlike a lot of other places and this is admirable.
We loved it. Especially for my niece. Yes, a bit pricey but good place to catch up and see some animals. The food being fed to the lions was their main show piece and was great to experience it. It was a bit cold and sometimes raining but we loved all the aspects of the walk around. Small Cafe in there too but service was defo with a smile.
Great place to take children. We loved how well thought out the design of the park is, my son (2yrs) was able to interact and view the animals without the need to be picked up all the time.
It is a little pricey ($30 per adult) which i can understand for the large number of tourists that want to experience the nz wildlife, but we would have loved a nz resident discount! We pass through regularly to visit family in the north and would love to make it a regular spot on the way if it were affordable to do so.
Overall an excellent and enjoyable 2hr experience
