Visited today in a day of warm temperatures and bright sunshine. The only word that can be used to describe the day is awesome. The only animal on display that we missed seeing was the lynx, every other was out enjoying the sun and posing for pictures. Whilst the range of animals isn't as large as some of the bigger... More

I really really loved roaming around this part on a warm summer day with my family. We really enjoyed learning new things about the animals. The tour also helped to explore the other parts. We did not have a car and had to take a large cab to the park and take the bus back. I will definitely try to... More

My husband and I have been here on multiple occasions and I have even adopted the Tigers!! The keepers are very knowledgable about the animals and always very helpful. We go multiple times throughout the year but our favourite time to go is when it has been snowing!! If you extremely lucky you may get within a few feet of... More

I felt it was expensive for a family of 4. We drove round the enclosure first and didnt see a great number of animals which was disappointing. You can then park and walk round the other enclosures. Ones worth seeing are the Tigers and wolves. There is a couple of childrens play areas and a flying fox which I suppose... More

We visited as a family of 4, having been before and had a very enjoyable day, however, we were not do impressed this time. We we're overcharged on entry (resolved because we noticed). But couldn't help feeling it maybe wasn't a genuine error on cashiers part as surely he should know the entrance fees off by heart? Again the drive... More

We arrived just as the park opened and drove around ourselves - so much to see if you take the time. After all, these are wild animals and won't pop up when you want them to! Had coffee and a scone then went out on the land-rover tour - this you have to do, as you drive in the opposite... More

As a family of 3 we decided to visit the wildlife park and thought we would probably spend a couple of hours there. We ended up staying all day and a had a great time. The park itself was well sign posted, clean and the animals all looked good, the staff were very knowledgeable and were always available to answer... More
