Our 140-acre park is home to an incredible range of exotic and endangered species, in beautiful, landscaped surroundings. Just by visiting Marwell Zoo (owned and operated by conservation charity, Marwell Wildlife) you'll be making a big contribution to our projects to conserve species and habitats, both here in Hampshire and around the world. Our biggest ever exhibit opens this summer - Wild Explorers an immersive new home for our rhinos, scimitar horned oryx and Grevy's zebras. These are all species we have special responsibility for in the wild.

The staff member who was giving the talks was very knowledgable and really enjoyed talking about them.... More

Great place, thankfully being updated as some of the buildings are getting tired. However the safari field is fab! They have placed animals who would live happily along side each other in the wild and they are roaming in a very large field. Much better than some of the smaller enclosures. I have been going for about 8 years now... More
