liked: everything I saw there, animals well cared for (some species hopefully saved from extinction and or cruelty) in the best environment that can be provided by the very knowledgeable,genuinely caring staff.DISLIKED; being a pensioner and wishing I could make a significant contribution to advance all of the above.

Fantastic value at this Wildlife Park. In a very natural setting and much bigger than expected are lots of healthy looking animals. A good variety of animals and the allocated feeding times are excellent, esp the Polar Bears! We will be returning. We've stayed in Aviemore for 15 years and never been before! What a shame. We'll visit every time... More

What a find! We went in the snow so were worried all the animals would be hiding away, and even more so when they told us that a bit of the drive-round part was closed. However, we were delighted! Right at the start a camel came right up to the car and had a good look at us, which was... More

Excellent small park - easy to get round and loads to see - the polar bear enclosure is awesome and got great footage of Walker & Arctos wrestling! The rest was great too - tigers, wolverine, snow monkeys etc. Be back very soon!

We visited on 12th January and it was very snowy and blustery. We saw some animals however most stayed in the enclosure areas (that's nature and animals for you). As the weather was changing constantly we went round the driving section a few times. The highlight for me was watching the two polar bears in their enclosure and having a... More

I had always wanted to visit the park and never had the opportunity until recently. We arrived quite early on a cold winter day with snow on the ground. To our surprise and unlike most of the wildlife places you visit the animals were very active and you didn't have to strain to catch a glimpse of them in some... More

Where can you take your elderly parent with reduced mobility (who's just getting over flu) when there's snow on the ground but you drive a nice, comfy Discovery 4x4? I know! The Highland Wildlife Park! Tootle around, heater on, taking our time and stopping to watch the animals, maybe even doing several laps. Sadly, that's not how it worked out.... More

We visited the park whilst staying at tigh Mor which worked out at a 2-3 hour drive due to the floods however it was worth the travel as we saw a variety of amazing and unique animals . Huge park , so many animals to see and lots of facts about the animals .

This will have been my fourth visit to this wildlife park. The park is set in beautiful surroundings. The animals roam free around the larger area and there is plenty to see. It's an amazing experience when you are confronted by a 3/4 ton bison just feet from your vehicle. It's times like that your glad the coach weighs sixteen... More
