Lovely day out especially for children but expensive. It is undergoing lots of extension work trying to make itself bigger and better but the animals are getting further away from visitors, shame

Wonderful place. It is great to see the animals looking so relaxed and happy in their beautiful enclosures. Obviously the well-being of the animals is of prime importance here. There is plenty of room for visitors to move around without being jostled. We took a picnic lunch and easily found a comfortable table to eat at, as there are plenty... More

A great day at Doncaster wildlife park with kids aged 2 to 13. A warm dry day always helps and the animals were very active. Lions chasing eat other over food and feeding time in the mammals monkeying around. Very clean and animals all seem well looked after. You get good views of the animals who were active so interesting.... More

You have to hunt them out a bit, but they're really funny and jumpy. The tiger cubs are at a super cute stage too. And we liked the giraffes, lemurs, polar bears and lions. So lots to see, well-maintained and helpful staff who will explain stuff. Best to take your own picnic.

The best zoo in the north of England. They take such care to give the animals the best possible environments, and the many talks by the keepers are very informative.

Great place for kids young and older, we saw so many different animals all of whom were treated in a very humane way which was a joy to see, from meerkats to tigers what amazing sights there were. Very easy to find from Ripon our home town and not too expensive, we spent the whole day there and highly recommend... More

We decided to visit here on the advice of my sister who had been previously however after reading some of the trip advisor negative reviews I was a bit sceptical....so glad we ignored these!!!!! The place was absolutely fabulous and I honestly could not pick fault with anything at all. We went mid week during school time so it was... More

We were a party of 4 adults and a 1 year old. on first arriving it did seem expensive but after spending the day there. It was worth every penny. The animals are easy to see and we enjoyed walking around the Lemur woods. I have been to many Zoos and wild life parks around the world and I must... More
