We were first time visitors to this up and coming wildlife park, it was fairly easy to find off the M18. There was a short queue to get tickets, I would recommend getting there for opening time to get closer parking and quick entry. Once in and a look at the map we were soon walking round the park, the... More

Whether you like your animals furry or in shells, large or small, four legs or six legs... well, you get the picture - there's a good selection of animals so there's something of interest for everyone. The park does a great job of balancing the needs of the animals with the needs of the paying public, as evidenced by the... More

I would recommend a visit to this up and coming wildlife park. I was really impressed with the large enclosures giving the animals lots of space and also the visitors space to view them. I would recommend getting there early otherwise you may be delayed entering the park. You could spend anywhere from an hour to all day here. The... More

Value for money with the annual passes we purchased. As we are local we can go for a full day out of just for a few hours to see a particular animal or visit the children's a area amd slide. A very well looked after attraction suitable for all age as. It is clean tidy and they are still expanding.... More

We've been visiting for a few years now and we still come away impressed after every visit! The facilities continue to improve and the care if the animals remains paramount. Great value for money. My daughters only criticism is that they don't have any Elephants!

We visited 28th may the animals are all in a lovley condition and look very well looked after. However the footpaths are all uneven gravel paths which throw up lots of dust when the wind blows.once there are toilets around the main entrance but once inside the park only porta loos.

We went today my sons are 10 &18, my youngest son loves animals and we were very disappointed, most of the animals were asleep so you couldn't take any decent photos, also they were quite far away from us so unless you have a good camera you don't get close up pictures, won't go again

Visited this week for half term. Lots of fun was had - animals all looked content and lots of info all around. Food ok bit pricey - (we ate outside gate) well signposted for exhibits - could do with few more benches as lots of walking involved.

We have visited the park about 8 or 9 times in the last few months. As we have a yearly pass we visit quite often and enjoy it every time. The tigers now have 3 little cubs and can't wait to see them. There are now 2 polar bears with more to come. Amazing. All the animals look really healthy... More
