It was a bit difficult to find, our GPS seemed to have a problem with it. However, once we got there, we had a very enjoyable afternoon watching the lions and giraffes get fed, then seeing a couple of kiwis in the kiwi house. I have suggested that they put a notice on the kiwi house that people need to give at least 10 minutes for their eyes to get used to the dark, because they won't see anything unless they wait. But it was well worth waiting, because we saw two of the four once our eyes had adjusted. Super day!!

we had an amazing day following the animal feedings.. the staff were lovely & friendly.. it was amazing to see & even help feed the animals to get so close
