What are others saying about their visits to Five Sisters Zoo?
“…the feedback we had from the kids was really positive. The star of the show was the animal handling, they couldn’t stop talking about it! We spent most of the time in clas today looking at pictures and discussing the trip“
“Great venue to help engage the kids within some of the more unusual aspects of the natural world which are not native to our country…. Or possibly continent!!
We had a great night, the animal keeper was very friendly and informative, and it was great being able to hold the smaller animals. Not so sure about the cockroach though!“
“The outing was very well organised. The children attended a handling session and an educational talk. There was plenty of space to have lunch and the children loved the play area, especially the pirate ship“
