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

This is a wonderful experience for the whole family. The staff are all pleasant and the animals are amazing! We went with our two small children and enjoyed it a lot. Most of the animals were out and there were very little people. I highly recommend taking the train around the park, it is great fun! We visited and attended... More

Great place for family to visit . They celebrate Christmas with an amazing wild lights display. They have a small train that travels the perimeter of the park for your viewing interest. The have a small eating area and a nice souvenir shop.
