Lonely Planet review
This 80-acre site is dotted with spacious enclosures recreating habitats as varied as savannah, wetland, tropical forest and desert. Highlights are the crocodile swamp, orang-utan island, a huge glass-walled lion enclosure and a lemur wood, where you walk over a plank suspension bridge as the primates leap around in surrounding trees. Buses 81 and 12A run at least hourly from Torquay (25 minutes).
