From the penguin cove and the sea lion theatre, to the creepy crawlies and Mark O’Shea’s reptile world, there are plenty of opportunities to get closer to nature, including meeting Nemo in SeaQuarium. Embark on a four-mile, drive-through safari across the African plains, where a herd of southern white rhino graze, or watch majestic African elephants eat their fill of 160 kilogrammes of vegetation. For big cat lovers, there is the tiger ridge, kingdom of the white lions and cheetah plains to discover.
