We went to the wildlife park as part of a late March trip to the cairngorms for our honeymoon. The park had been closed at some point for renovation according to a friendly local but what we found when we got there was less than good. Although the place was nice there were very few animals. There were the polar... More

We visited and were told there was a reduced entry cost as the main reserve was being worked on. We enjoyed seeing one of their tigers in what seemed like a reasonably large enclosure, the other two were having a long lie! Were very disappointed that the Pallas Cats were not on display as they were one of the species... More

We visited as part of our trip to Aviemore. Cars weren't allowed to drive through the main reserve due to renovations being done to the polar bear enclosure however they reduced the price of the ticket to reflect this and they were putting on more guided tours in the park's own 4x4 vehicles. We were shown around the reserve by... More

We had the bonus of the weather being beautiful on the day we visited. Parts of the park were being renovated so we could not drive through the main reserve on our own but we were able to have a free group escorted tour, minibus or landrover, which was great as the driver was very informative and pointed out animals...

The main park was just as good.....they have POLAR BEARS and wolverines! The only down side is the cost of the food, but... More

Visited the park today with my almost 2 year old son. He was keen to see the tigers and polar bears. We had a nice time but only stayed for just over an hour because of a lack of catering. There was a small coffee shop which sold a limited selection of rolls and some snacks, nothing we were willing... More

Went to the wildlife park today. Due to recent heavy rainfall the reserve was flooded and burst a bank (So we were told at the gates) the reserve was therefore closed to vehicles but we had to pay full price for the tickets. Didn't see any of the animals on the reserve and there was no sign of any damage... More
