“A Great day out, despite what other reviews say, read on”

Written on: 14/09/2011

If you do your research you will find that Twycross is known for its work with primates and conservation of a few very rare species.
So don't be surprised if you see a lot of Apes/Monkeys/Gorillas and other assorted primates, They are all great to see and many are fun to watch, our grandchildren were kept fasinated for ages.

Also dont be surprised to see some very rare creatures such as Amur Leopards(probably the most beautiful of all the large cats and only 30 - 40 left in the wild) the two they have are beautiful. I was eye to eye with one with only inches between us a very moving experience.

You can also see the very rare pair of Snow Leopards and when we went they had two cubs, (these are visible from the main restaurant which is free to enter and serves good food at a very reasonable price) an experience I will not forget as seeing these animals in the wild is an encounter most will never have the opportunity to achieve.

If you have problems with mobility, do as I did and hire a scooter everywhere is accessible and it made the day a great experience. Yes the signage is a little lacking but treat it as a challenge to find and see everything and enjoy

We will all go back again
