Come and visit Paradise Wildlife Park, the most interactive zoo in Britain. 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.

I had never heard of this zoo so wasn't expecting too much but I was pleasantly surprised by the variety and the pretty amazing views throughout the zoo. There's so much for kids to do here and a few things for us big kids. You can normally get a deal for here from Groupon to save you a few £'s... More

We had an amazing day here. It is not a massive place, this is an advantage because my small children could walk the whole area - there are so many brilliant animals to see - the lions, tigers and the other big cats were great. My youngest daughter is a huge Frozen fan so she was so excited to see... More

Went here yesterday by coach in very heavy rain but that didn't spoil our day, staff were waiting for us with umbrellas to lead us to a sheltered area and tell us where we could get hot drinks and where we would find the covered play areas for children The zoo is well run the animals look well cared for...

I thought it would be better to move on from our local zoo and try somewhere different for a change, I mean, with all the reviews saying how "it was the best family adventure" and a "great day out", I couldn't argue. When arriving, the whole area (car park and building) looked and felt inviting, no mess or full bins... More

Hello Myleine, Thank you for feedback regarding Paradise Wildlife Park. We are saddened to hear that you were disappointed by your visit. However, we feel it might be beneficial to give you some more information about the park. The hair “missing” from the deer is normal and a form of moulting and grooming which happens every year. So there is... More

I booked a Snooze at the Zoo experience and we couldn't have asked for more. From the minute we arrived at the discovery centre we were treated like VIPs. The staff were all so friendly and accomodating. The room was beyond our expectations (we had the Zebra room), beds were comfy, 4 tvs! a selection of DVDs, tea, coffee. They... More

Entry is quite reasonable as the zoo is quite small amd you can get around the whole place in 3 hours unless you attend the talks etc. The food is ok but they could improve on the coffee which is basically made like your in a work canteen with uht milk. A nice range of animals and play area for... More

We took my granddaughter today to the Paradise Wildlife Park. She's 2 years old and absolutely loved every moment of it. We were amazed at so many animals and how clean the whole place was. We've never been before, and can't think of why we haven't! Was 90 degrees today so we got there for when it opened at 9... More

First visit to Paradise Wildlife Park and was very impressed. We arrived roughly 45 mins after opening and there was only a relatively short queue, even in the middle of the summer holidays. We paid with Tesco Clubcard vouchers, meaning the visit was minimal cost. I would say that the Park is a wonderful place for children up to about... More

We arrived at 9.30am - and there were already quite few people there. Our entry cost was only £17 as I had won vouchers for 2 kids to get in free. We spent the whole day and did everything. Went on the tractor (free), saw all the animals, went on the train (£1 each), touched a snake, and had hotdogs... More
