Visited this place in May, and despite it pouring down we didn't want to leave! Visited it about 5 years ago and can't believe how much its expanded. The Polar Bears were great, and put on a fantastic show in their pool for us!

Great day out. Lots too see... can't either walk or drive around most parts... lots of information around. I went in November time so it was quite cold but evening was still brilliant.. just a 15 min drive from aviemore.

The most surprising thing about this place is that the staff don't wear masks, like most robbers. The price they charge for seeing very little is shocking. The only good thing about this place is the tiger. You can get a good look at this impressive beast, and they have plenty room to roam. Why they didn't make the other... More

Spent an afternoon in the park. We started with a drive round the outer park, where to be honest we didn't see a great number of animals. However you can repeat the drive as many times as you like during your visit. We did another drive round at the end of the afternoon and perseverance paid off. In between times... More

On a sunshine and downpour kind of day this visit may have been catastrophic but we all loved the visit including the 12 year old. We did the drive through and saw bison, deer and playful polar bears, we walked close to wolves and wild cats. Saw a wolverine for the first time. Got up close to Lynx. Watched the... More

Great day out. £15 per adult admission. You can drive round the reserve as many times as you want. During your drive you will see Bison, Deer, Przewalski Horses and many more. Its also a great place to do some bird watching. The big attractions are the Polar Bears, Amur Tigers and the Snow Monkeys. The Tigers, Snow Monkeys and... More

We went in without knowing what it was about and we ended up having an amazing time. Driving amongst animals, having to wait for them to cross to the other side of the road, seeing a herd move together, it was all wonderful. The exhibits were well put-together, informative and educational. Children would love this place, and so would adults.... More

We went as a couple but it is great for kids too. The animals all have plenty room to roam about and they are constantly updating and add new animals. One of the best Zoo's we have been to not the biggest by any means but if you want to get up close or see them as they probably would... More

Took the photo tour which was fantastic, arrived at the park an hour and a half before opening to see the animals close up and personal. We were allowed closer to the animals (between fences) and could place our lenses through the inner fences to get unobstructed lines of sight. The guide was informative and knowledgable.
