Wonderful Day Out! A wide variety of beautiful animals to see, and given the history of some its lovely to see them in such well thought out enclosures. Great amenities, parking is ample and super close, staff were friendly and approachable. I would recommend wholeheartedly (even if the bears were hiding from me! 😂)
The Five Sisters Zoo near Livingston is a fine zoo with many interesting exhibits. You can easily spend the whole day to see all of the animals and birds. There is a play area for children. Food outlets are not great quality, but the prices are okay. The animals all appear to be well looked after and the enclosures are clean and well maintained. The lions were rescued from a circus and are thriving in their new home. It is easy to be critical of zoos, but the owners of this zoo are doing a fine job. I would visit again and bring a picnic. Well worth a visit.
