We take the grandkids every year - the park is walkable, though we do like the train tour - and the variety of wildlife is remarkable. They do wonders healing wounded wildlife and returning them to the wild. Those that cannot be returned are well cared for, and become teaching animals, to increase public awareness. Home to the world's only... More

I have a membership in the Kamloops Wildlife Park because of the incredible work they do both to educate people about the animals, and the recovery work for the animals.

When I think of a wildlife park I gt concerned with the treatment of the animals, I found the park well maintained and the animals well cared for. The park is easy to get around and they have a good and diverse selection of species. If near kamloops take your family, you will not be disappointed.

The park itself is in a neat location and there is a lot of potential but overall it was similar to visiting a zoo in China. Small heavily caged enclosures with little "natural" habitat. With a name that includes "park" we expected much more open space, especially since it focused on local animals. There is one major new enclosure being... More

The animals are beautiful and the badger is full of personality. Lots of little gifts and interactive activities. Holidays are celebrated nicely with lights and characters. The one downfall is the cafe. DO NOT GO HERE FOR FOOD OR IF YOU ARE HUNGRY. Would recommend the cafe have a service, food and price lift. Long waits, expensive, horrible quality food.... More

This may not be the biggest "zoo" around, because it is indeed not a traditional zoo. As a wildlife park, you'll find a wide variety of species almost all of which can be found in the local area. There are great educational programs available for kids, and a really cute little train you can take around the park (small surcharge).... More

If you are fascinated by and love animals, but insist on seeing them in an environment where they are safe, respected, and well cared for, you could not ask for a better experience. Not only did we see up close an enormous variety of birds and mammals (and some reptiles!) but we learned so much. The staff were outstanding. This... More

This Wildlife Park is perfect for kids aged 2 to about 15 as teenagers lose interest after the age of 15 on many things. They have an excellent bird of prey area and have added camels I think this year which is pretty cool. It is a nice walk especially today as super nice and sunny out on Oct 11.... More

We stopped here to relax after an awful experience in a local hotel and was quietly surprise at the quality and size of the enclosures, were able to see some of the animals we failed to see on our Canadian trip, we were one of the few guests at a quiet time of year but we had a pleasurable 2...

This place was small but had plenty of animals. We went early in the morning which I wouldn't recommend as many of the animals wasn't out yet as they hadn't opened their doors to let them out. We had to stay longer than we wanted to see all the animals. And it was a blistering hot day. Which for us... More
