Absolutely brilliant day out! Saw animals Ive never seen before, and the amazing scenery around the Park is well worth the visit in itself! Great wee restaurant but bit pricey, next time we will take picnic! Looking forward to my next visit with my granddaughter who has now adopted a snow monkey!

Great visit, saw lots of animals I've never seen. Recommend the safari visit with the keepers, great way to see the animals as they know their hiding spots. We used Tesco vouchers which reduced the cost significantly.

Had an amazing few hours at the wildlife park. The safari element is absolutely brilliant, with 200+ acres of fields to explore. Even if you don't see many animals - as we didn't the first time round - the scenery is simply stunning. The red pandas were a particular highlight, as they were the most active I have ever seen...

It was years since we had visited the Highland Wildlife park so we thought we'd make a return trip last week - what a transformation! Driving around the main reserve we got some great views of the animals but actually the highlight was getting out of the car in the walk around area. Polar bears, tigers, red pandas, wildcats -...

Highlight of this trip was seeing the polar bears. We did pay the £1 each for the tour which is worth doing. The only let down was the restraunt was shut so ended up going elsewhere for food. Tip if you are visiting go when it opens as it does get busy even off peak

Muddy polar bears - soon to have a female companion, red pandas CUTE! Elk... knowlegable friendly guide on landrover guided drive around. Dogs have to stay in cars but well provided with dog walking area. Excellent overall and easily a full day.

Visited the Park in February 2015 and found the staff to be very pleasant. Although we enjoyed our visit, we were very sorry to see that the enclosures seemed to be too small for the animals. In particular, we were dismayed to see that the wolves, wolverine and polar bears had inadequate areas to live in. Given that these animals... More

We stayed in a b&b in kingussie to go skiing for the weekend.. One day the mountain was shut due to high winds so asked our hosts what to do and they recommended coming here.. We didn't know it was there until we arrived!! We had a amazing time our kids loved it. A real gem!

Going in the winter didn't hamper the enjoyment, saw all the wildlife around the park. Safari park element and a walk-a-round zoo. Inclusive tour is well worthwhile.

On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly and helpful member of the park. We drove right around the sight and it was amazing to see all the animals. all of whom looked very well cared for. We were lucky to meet one of the keepers who gave us an insight into the polar bears and their origins and... More
