"We’ve done a lot of ‘animal experiences’ but they fade in comparison to the experience you give! From start to finish my son was made to feel super special with a cool birthday card, signed certificate and even some real skin as a souvenir! The expertise and passion for what you do is amazing Darren!! We can’t thank you enough for the personal, quality, unique and unforgettable experience you gave our Son. Such an amazing place to visit, I can’t recommend it enough. We already can’t wait to return!!"

"Love this place!

Our third time visiting! I think I enjoy it more then the kids!

The animals are so well cared for and the ranger is so lovely and very knowledgeable, we are planning our next trip in the six weeks holiday!

Thank you again x"


"The Jungle Hut is absolutely great! I came across this reviews page as booking my 4th(?) visit and just had to leave a review.. Having such a hands-on experience is something I've never found elsewhere. Darren is very knowledgeable on all the animals you meet, you can tell he genuinely loves what he does. He's has also rescued some of the animals, as they didn't have a great start to life which is great to see. The animals are cared for, happy, and very friendly, so this is a great place to take kids too. I could go on forever...if you get the chance - visit this place!! :)"

"We can’t thank Darren enough for such a wonderful family experience today at

the Jungle Hut !
Our 7 year old son who is passionate about reptiles had the absolute time of his life and it was so special to see him interact with Darren and have all his questions answered and get hands on with all the animals on offer.
A priceless experience and one we will definitely revisit soon !
Thank you again so very much!"

"Our 8 year old had her birthday party at the Jungle Hut and the response was from all the kids ‘this is the best party ever’.

 Highly recommend The Jungle Hut, Darren is so friendly and his love and passion for his animals shines through! 

Will definitely be back for another visit."

"Darren hosted my son's 6th birthday party this weekend and I have not stopped having compliments ever since from both the kids and their parents. He literally arranges everything. All I had to supply was the kids and the cake. This was our second time at the jungle hut as my son asked to go again for his party and I know it won't be the last. Controlling a room of 10 5-6yr old boys is no joke. But Darren was amazing. And his son did an excellent job of helping too. If you want a party with a difference or just want a 1 on 1 visit then this place is the place to go 😃"


"Another visit to this gem of a place. Darren is so knowledgeable and friendly and his enthusiasm and desire to pass this on to visitors is infectious."

"Wow! I can't say enough good things about The Jungle Hut and Darren. My son is such a huge reptile fan and Darren did everything to make the experience special for him. I think he summed it up well when we left and he said "this was my best day ever". I hope we can come back again soon!"
