Reviewed September 24, 2017, We had a great day here, and an excellent lunch in the huge conservatory surrounded by the African masks, when we visited on Saturday. The puzzle trail for the kids is a great way to keep them occupied for an hour or two and there’s a nice range of animals to see.
Reviewed September 24, 2017, As the weather forecast for the day was poor we decided to visit the zoo. I was very pleased we did, although the zoo is quite small compared to our last experience of a zoo it was very well laid out with lots of varied animals and birds to see.
The keepers talk where interesting and informative. I would recommend this zoo to anyone wanting a great day out for all the family. Reviewed September 23, 2017, via mobile Nanny, Grandad, Jackie Layla, Cash&Seren We all had a wonderful day at the Zoo, Saw lots of animals, went to the encounter zone for the spider phobia talk.
We walked around this lovely zoo which has a very relaxed and caring feel about it. The animals are very well looked after by keepers who are very knowledgeable about them and will stop and chat and answer all and every question asked by adults and children.
A lovely café which has been extended to accommodate more people. The food is of a very high standard with plenty of variety.
Reviewed 26 August 2018 via mobile My partner and I visited Exmoorzoo back in June of this year. The keepers were all very informative and friendly, answering any and all of our many questions.
Especially going into the wallaby enclosure and getting to hand feed them, gave us a once in a lifetime opportunity. Reviewed 26 August 2018 We had a good and very enjoyable day, plenty to see, lovely walkways around the zoo.
Well looked after and content animals and birds. Plenty of activities, talks and staff happy to chat.well-marked out routes and good facilities and restaurant and seating. Good play park and picnic area. Plenty to amuse for the whole day... Not a large zoo but ample to entertain and small enough to care... A great gem for North Devon... They promote zoo parties for birthdays, great idea and zookeeper days, another great gift idea for any age even I could enjoy that. It's quite fashionable these days for these type of gifts especially as it supports their great work...
Reviewed 26 August 2018 We visited on a very wet day, wellies would have been good. We were very disappointed to find no otters there anyone.
The talks are brief, but interesting and worth attending, especially the zoo babies one where you choose which to look at. Unfortunately the tearoom service was, I would have to say hostile gluten free.
I know there had been a power cut but no excuse for staff attitude when all I wanted to know was if the hot chocolate was GF. There is GF bread but limited other choices, no effort made to change this over three years of visits.
We do have unique and special animals not seen in other UK zoos, we are relatively compact, and we do specialize in hand reared animals that help interact with our visitors. There are other zoos that specialist in different species and have far larger enclosures, but it is all a case of what is necessary to provide good welfare for those we have on exhibit.
Reviewed 24 August 2018 via mobile The children really enjoyed, small, but ok for the price. You must bring your own face covering to enter and exit the zoo admissions, toilets, gift shop and monkey house.
Due to government restrictions we must regulate the numbers entering the zoo on a daily basis. All day visit slot details will be stored and used for track and trace purposes.
In busy periods if you have not booked a visit slot you will be respectfully refused entry. Please check carefully you have ordered the correct tickets before completing your purchase.
Today we had 130 slots available which were all booked out, We had people ringing up to see if we had any cancellations as they were wanting to visit. We did have a few cancellations and thank those of you who couldn't make it who had the courtesy to ring and let us know so that we could release some space but still had to turn some visitors away.
A total of 90 slots actually turned up meaning we had a shortfall of 40 slots we could have sold :(We will not survive if this trend continues, we have just had 3 months closure and were on the brink of total closure and without the help of the very generous people of our community who donated not only money but food and gifts for the animals we managed to just survive. Please, please, please only book a slot if you are definitely coming and if you can't make it for any reason give us a call or email, help us please to help you.
