Guest's review of Linton Zoo, Linton, Cambridgeshire


“lovely ramble with animals”

Written on: 04/10/2015

Lived in cambridge 50 years first visit. What a treat. Animals happy and very well looked after. Went quite early and animals rather sensibly stayed snugly in it warmed up they emerged. Once you got the concept of big natural enclosures it was really nice to stroll back and see what had come out. Some of the more slothful animals such as tapirs who only rouse themselves for food get fed at certain times and it's well worth catching these as you get really close up views. They did come out later when it was warmer to graze. The keepers were really friendly and knowledgeable and were obviously much attached to their charges who liked them in return. You could see a bond. Which was nice. The petting zoo was brilliant no fluffy bunnies and the odd snake but really interesting and unusual animals. We had a skink, a tortoise and of all things a very large cockroach! Personally I don't like insects. But the keeper was so sweet and so proud of his cockrosch that I overcame my distaste and stroked it and ended up fascinated and much taken with it. Although we only had a baby with us we could see there were lots of play areas dotted around to amuse children who either couldn't see the animals or needed a little distraction. Play areas were dotted round so you didn't have to walk back to a central play area each time, and it was easy to catch up to the rest of your party. Cafe was good and reasonably priced. Rntrance fee was very reasonable for a day out. Altogether a lovely experience will definitely return and well recommended.
