Impressed - better than the reviews

I'd looked at going here before, but the reviews, especially those from around February really put me off. Overall, my summary is that this is a well maintained place, with some... read more

We've been a couple of times now, both at Easter & the kids get egg hunts to do on the way around. Its nice to have somthing bit different like set in woodland to make it unlike other places. Theres quite a good range of animals there, while we were there we managed to get to see the wolves being... More

This is a great place for a family visit with brilliant play facilities and cafe. But who could not enjoy a woodland walk where you get to see wild boar, bison, bears and wolves!

Needs a little bit of love and attention. Only good thing is the play area my niece loved it. I hardly saw any animals.... A bee. One bear and some pigs.... But loads of empty cages .... Go to wingham wildlife. Much better

I'd looked at going here before, but the reviews, especially those from around February really put me off. Overall, my summary is that this is a well maintained place, with some amazing animals and really caring, attentive staff. I think the place could do with employing some kind of "customer experience" person to see how the place looks from an... More

What a lovely place. Very natural setting. So many other parks may have more animals but the kids usually have had enough after seeing the first few and then just want to head off to the playpark. Which is not really the point of visiting an animal park! Although my children were at an age beyond playparks - I just... More

It's starting to look a little sad - needs a bit of work done to the enclosures as it stands it's not worth the entrance fee but the children liked it.

Not many animals and screaming kids which didn't really help.There was a good park though. Wolves were lovely and there were new bears but it definitely needs more animals and less noise.

The park entrance is, off puttingly,through other business premises but once inside we started to discover a magical muddy wonderland where you can see see inside the dens of nocturnal animals, see real bears AND play in an enormous adventure playground.

We were thoroughly impressed with our trip to Wildwood. Having been previously when taking my class on a school trip, I already knew it was a great place to take a group of children. So I was intrigued to see if it would be just as a much fun with some 20-odd year old couples. The park is not huge,... More

Third time we have visited here - animals are few and far between - most enclosures are not inhabited. New bears are awesome to see up close and as ever the wolves are lovely but that's about it! Bank Holiday Monday was not the best choice as it was full of excitable small children running around being noisy! The drop... More
