The Highland Wildlife park is carefully managed and with great conservation goal at heart. Wildlife park is usually way better than city zoos, where animals seldom have enough space for natural behaviours. If you want to see animals properly this is the place. Spend the whole day (at least) in it, watch/observe the animals attentively and walk in the park...you'll... More

Had a great visit to this attraction. Although it was very cold, we really enjoyed our time at the park. Without a doubt the best part of the day was seeing the tigers "up close" and seeing them being fed. The area they are kept in until they are released for feeding is great, we got such a good view...

Fantastic place to visit and really unexpected to be there. The animals look well looked after and have huge enclosures. My favourites were the red pandas, tigers and monkeys. The safari element was great too as we visited on a cold day. Went around the safari in the fog, the again when the fog had cleared. It was a gorgeous... More

Well worth a trip, this is my second this year and again it didn't disappoint. Saw all the animals which was great, especially the Polar Bears and the Tigers and the Wildcats. Even though it was a cold day you didn't really feel it walking round. You can also drive through part of it and see some of the animals... More

A combination of areas to drive around and walk around. We managed to see all the animals although sometimes it was difficult to spot them. A touch expensive but I suppose all the money goes to a good cause.

Good day out seeing all the animals. You can even see how they are looking to improve and expand this. Even though it was cold looking at some of the animals still warmed you up along side a brew in the cafe

A mixture of drive round and walk round enclosures. Most animals are natural to tundra. We took an escorted drive round the park with an informative guide. This was free but recommend £1 donation. In the walk round part some animals are elusive but make an appearance at feeding times. Staff are very informative at these. Entry fee very reasonable.... More

A huge Highland estate turned into a wildlife park with both native and exotic animals. Large areas for the animals with proven success in breeding endangered species. Knowlegeable and friendly staff who give talks and have special photography trips. Good cafe and shop, children's play area and outside picnic area.

We go here at least once a month - more like once a week when we get the chance. Although we have members passes, I am always happy to treat a friend and pay them in, and would be happy to pay the price if I didn't have the pass. Every time we visit we see something different, even when... More
