Great to see animals in their natural environment, Just shame their wasn't much of the animals to see that I enjoy, thought there would have been more . I'd read reviews & was under the impression that there was more birds to see & a falconry display!!! but no such luck . The trip was worth while to see the... More

I have been to the highland wildlife park on a few occasions, and each time it has been fantastic. The animal enclosures are all created around existing woodland or open spaces, not an inch of concrete in sight, so all of the animals are living in a roomy and natural environment, with even a safari style drive-around enclosure for grazing...

Great day out for animal lovers. Part drive through and part on foot. Managed to spot all the animals. Keepers very informative and helpful. Loved watching one of the polar bears playing in the pool and also being fed. Good value for money. Would recommend.

The tigers, monkeys and polar bears can all be seen easily and in their huge enclosures. A very good cafe, but lots of picnic tables if you bring your own food. Feeding times are given on entry so you don't miss anything. You get the chance to drive around safari style to watch the herds of deer etc.You need good... More

This is our second visit to the Highland Wildlife Park. This time we got to see young Scottish Wildcats, my favourite animal in the park. We also had a great time watching two lynx kittens playing and harassing their mother. The polar bears were both sleeping but we got a good view of them. The wolves were also sleeping so... More

The highland Wildlife park is set within an abundant backdrop of mountains and breathhtaking views. this in itself makes it a good place to visit. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable - all helping to ensure an enjoyable visit. We loved seeing the polar bears up close, also seeing some more unusual animals associated with highland climate living. We particularly enjoyed... More

We've visited twice and on both occasions there was so much to see that we spent the whole day, the animal enclosures are large and kept well with contented looking animals, they must be happy as the successful breeding is brilliant, my partner is a photographer and was pleased with the ability to take good shots , daughter loved the...

We all had such a wonderful day out at this park. I loved seeing the Tigers and going on the guided tour. My children were in awe of seeing so many different types of animals up close and personal, especially the polar bears. Lots of information and well set out. A little pricey but sadly these things tend to be... More
