Treated the birthday girl to an afternoon here with her pal and sisters and they all had a great time. Staff were all friendly, and Ewen was very helpful. Lots to keep the kids amused, fav animals were the goats, the pigs, bunnies, snakes, chicks, guinea pigs, the list goes on... The food was tasty and priced just as you'd... More

It may not be as fancy as some of the really big and much busier wildlife parks elsewhere but my kids had a great time looking at all the animals and feeding some of them. It's not cheap, but probably comparable to sitting in the cinema with ridiculously priced popcorn! Also, for the typical miserable folk leaving negative reviews: As... More

I think it is a great shame that this wildlife park gets these negative reviews which It doesn't really deserve. It is similar to the wildlife park at Comrie which I always enjoy and which has a similar variety of animals. These family run businesses do not enjoy the vast numbers of visitors, the financial resources and investments that zoos... More

Such a waste. Could have such potential but is run down and neglected. The animals look well fed and cared for just very disappointing elsewhere.

We visited here yesterday 2 Adults & 3 Kids (one of whom is under 2 years of age) we were £31 & pretty unimpressed from the very beginning, the older lady was quite abrupt & not friendly or helpful at all. The park & animals itself is pretty cr*p, okay I wasn't expecting Busch Gardens Florida but where are the... More

Great fun. Don't let the kids feed the Emus/Ostriches (excuse my ignorance) as those are some hungry birds. There was one in what we surmised to be the 'thinking pen', separate from the others, who seemed particularly vicious. Likewise, the goats were very hungry, and we had no food left at this point, so maybe get an extra bag. The... More

Visited this wildlife park at the end of its winter season. Without its full compliment of animals on display, it accordingly charges a lower winter rate. This proved to be excellent value. There was still a wide and varied selection of animals to see. For the first half of our visit we were led round the route by a helpful... More

The centre was in a shocking state. I was very upset and disturbed by the behaviour of some of the animals (specially the zebras who had tried to gnaw their way out of their enclosure!). The place was overgrown with severe lack of PUBLIC health and safety, let alone the health and safety of the animals and birds kept there,... More
