Based at Broxbourne in Hertfordshire, we are open all year round, every weekday and weekend! The brilliant design of our enclosures means that you can meet some amazing animals face to face! We have a huge collection of over 400 animals including the best collection of big cats on display in Britain. Our cats include: white tigers, white lions, Amur tigers, Sumatran tigers, African lions, snow leopards, leopards, cheetahs and ocelots. We also have penguins, meerkats, monkeys, gibbons, lemurs, zebras, tapirs, wolves, wallabies, reptiles, birds and much, much more! We are unique because you can touch and even feed many of the animals in the Animal Park by purchasing one of our specially prepared animal feedbags. Have fun in one of our five adventure playgrounds, at the daily shows and at the meet the keeper sessions. « less

As two adults visiting we enjoyed our day, stayed about 4 hours. Used Tesco boost vouchers to get in. Would have been slightly expensive without these. The big cats were good and we spent most of our time in this area. The best thing was having the high walkways so that you can gets view from above. The animal area... More

We really like Paradise Park and have visited a number of times with the children over the last few years. There is a great selection of animals and the park itself is manageable for the little legs to walk around. Food and refreshments are reasonable and there is also plenty of space for picnics.

Spend a whole day getting up close to some lovely animals, then run off lunch in the playground after. pirate ship was very poular with mine with much scope with the tunnels to do hide... More

Having read the mixed reviews i wasn't certain how I would feel about this zoo however I am happy to say I loved it. I visited with a 12 year old and my 9 year old son. It's a small zoo but big enough with plenty of animals to look at. We listened to the zoo keepers talk on the... More

They have a lot of big Cat's here ( to be fair they look in good condition ) But they are in far to small enclosures which themselves are old and not that well kept. Although the site is not Huge the reason for the cramped Animals is that more then half of it has been turned over to adventure... More

We came to Paradise Wildlife Park because the wife was given a “Shadow a Big Cat Keeper” experience as a birthday present. Prior to this we had no idea that this place even existed. The Big Cat Experience: We were at the Visitor Centre at 08.30 where we were all given a drink and some biscuits (there were four adults... More

We went with 4 kids, ranging from 2yrs to 10yrs, and each one was excited by it. There were miniature activities for the elder children, with a walkway above the pathway with great visibility of the lion enclosure. The bird shows were a great attraction too. Enough for a half day out...with a picnic afterwards. There is also a kids... More

Pretty well maintained, plenty for kids to do (though a lot of equipment and rides aimed mainly at under 8s rather than older ones). As others have commented, animal enclosures feel a bit on the small side, though well within legal limits I'm sure. I'm not really a fan of keeping animals like big cats and zebra in such surroundings... More

My wonderful wife decided to treat me to shadow a big cat keeper for the day for the day, and it was I have to say, brilliant. Before the park opened to the public we were greeted with teas, coffees, biscuits etc, then offered a walk around before we met our keeper for the day. Ross was a friendly, welcoming,... More
