Anna’s Welsh Zoo
30 minutes from Old Oak Barn near Tenby is Anna’s Welsh Zoo which is also known as Manor House Wildlife Park. It offers a very hands on experience in four “Zoonique Animal Walkthroughs” where you can get right up close for example to wallabies and lemurs.
When we visited in July 2014 we found the animals to be very contented and calm and were struck with the well thought out environment. It’s not perfectly tidy but the animals like the piles of random wood which has been left for a purpose. We loved the baby wallabies which we could almost touch inside their mother’s pouches. The baby meerkats were very humourous larking about in their family groups. Set in 52 organic acres there is lots to see and do.
These two amazing emus will greet you on arrival!
This rhino is not real but stands guard all the same.; young children will love the green lawns where some much loved trikes were in demand and our 2 year old grandson adored the willow tunnel.
The meerkats are comical to watch and don’t seem to mind an audience!
So apart from the rhinos, apes, zebras, oryx, tapirs, emus.camels and lamas etc there is lots to see and do. Currently under construction is a big undercover play area.
