Description: THIS IS YOUR INVITATION TO A WILDLIFE PARK LESS ORDINARY! Seaview...
THIS IS YOUR INVITATION TO A WILDLIFE PARK LESS ORDINARY! Seaview Wildlife really stands out from the crowd! Tucked away on the N.E. Coast of the Island, situated on the outskirts of the pretty yachting village of Seaview, you will discover this hidden gem, the Isle of Wight's leader in hands-on wildlife experiences and ranked Number 1 out of 98 Isle of Wight Attractions on Trip Advisor! Getting mobbed by Wallabies and Meerkats might send some people running but animal enthusiasts will be in seventh heaven - in absolute style - at this multi-award winning attraction that is set in stunning open parklands with a backdrop of fabulous sea views. The main focus is on involvement where guests are encouraged to join in with the nine daily wildlife events that are led by a dynamic animal care team who deliver fun hands-on presentations and will introduce you to the most amazing characters and a vast array of unbelievably tame feathered and furry friends! Our licensed ' Seaview Bay ' cafe serves locally sourced ingredients such as fresh Bembridge crab sandwiches accompanied with a chilled glass of wine or relax on our outdoor patio areas with stunning views. Home made light lunches and delicious strawberry cream teas feature on the menu together with an extensively stocked gift shop with a ' new refurbished look ' for 2014! Personal, bespoke V.I.P. Packages include one-on-one encounters with penguins where meeting ' Dippy' the famous Isle of Wight penguin has to be top of your bucket list! Have a private meeting with the 'maddest mischievous meerkat mob' or book a behind the scenes Keeper For A Day or Junior Wildlife Experience - the ultimate wildlife treat! You can never be too spoilt! Offering excellent value for money this is a magical day out for all the family and a wildlife extravaganza not to be missed so, don't leave the best until last and definitely don't leave the Island without visiting this exclusive Wildlife Getaway!

This is a lovely little zoo to visit, the staff are friendly and knowledgable. We spent a couple of hours wandering around the animals. We particularly enjoyed the talk about the parrots and then getting to feed them peanuts afterwards! The animals are all well looked after and the park is clean and tidy. We had lunch in the cafe,...

We had just arrived on the IOW and on checking where our accommodation was we came across this place. It is up a narrow windy road, but worth the effort. There is a big carpark which leads straight to the ticket desk, where we were met with pleasant staff. They gave us a map of the park and listed on... More

Visited here during school holidays with a 3yr and 9yr old. Ducks surround as you enter, all friendly and waiting for feed! Animal petting area was a big hit, kids loved grooming the babydoll sheep! Lots of animals you can touch or feed. Keepers allow visitors to feed the koi fish too. Highlight was penguin feeding time, keeper did a... More

We booked The Wildest Date animal encounter and had a great day on 23 July. We were treated like VIPs and got to meet all the animals up close. We fed the cute meerkats, penguins and flamingos. All the keepers we met were so friendly and took lots of great photos of us so we have lovely memories to keep... More

My kids of 10 and 7 loved it here! The animals all looked happy and well cared for. The talks were very interesting and the kids loved having the opportunity of getting up close to a variety of the animals. The parrots, pelicans and penguins were their favourites! The grounds were well maintained, and the staff were very approachable and... More

A lovely place to visit with my 10yr old son. The place is well laid out with lots to see. Very relaxed and colourful attractive. Something that really stood out is how spotlessly clean everywhere was, everything is very well maintained and neatly laid out. It was a total pleasure walking round seeing the animals and birds. The Resturant was... More
