The orang-utan hiding picking up a piece of sack and draping it over himself when the rain started was the highlight of my day! He looked genuinely fed up but that he couldn't be bothered to move out of the rain - it amused me! Beautiful enclosures for the animals - nicely laid out.

Fantastic family day out. Quite expensive but what great attraction isn't! If visiting Jersey, this place must be tried. Pity it was raining on our visit, otherwise we would have stayed longer.

wonderful place to visit. the place is amazingly big. the animals can be seen in their natural surroundings (created by the wildlife park officials). highlight of the visit was the gorilla family and the orangutans and also the delicious jersey ice cream served in one of the cafe's located inside the park. a great way to spend a full day...

We called on a rainy ( !!) Summer day. You can catch the organised tour bus or one of the three service buses to get there. The £3 guide book was worth the money, and you get a separate list of the talks etc that seem to be every half an hour. If it is fine take a picnic as... More

I visited the zoo with my 2 sons aged 14 and 10. Both had a really great time. Special interest were for the Orangutans and the Gorillas, where we were there at the right time for their feeding and the keeper talks. Aside from these animals, however, only the bears and the snakes were of real interest but, nonetheless, it... More

The bus takes you direct to Durrell which is very handy but we did have to stand all the way as it was a popular route. I was disappointed that they did not offer a family ticket, 2 adults and 2 children cost £48 making this the most expensive tourist attraction that we visited in Jersey. Definitely listen to the...

Really enjoyed our day here. Great to see the animals at close quarters and it relatively realistic environments. Well worth the visit.

On a recent holiday to Jersey. Durrell Wildlife Park was on our must see bucket list. It was a beautiful zoo with good sized enclosures for their animals. The map that game with our guide book had a map with a route mapped out to see everything. Which we really enjoyed following. The staff we met along the way were... More

Very clean and nicely laid out. Not too big for little people. All the animals appeared to be in good health and happy (not that I'm an expert). Particularly enjoyed seeing the Silverback Gorilla and the baby Indigo, fascinating. Reasonably priced though the gift shop is a bit expensive.

This was on the 'Must see' list on my recent trip to Jersey. Arrived just after it opened and spent a good 3-4 hours walking around and taking in the lovely animals. Very nice for a small place. Worth getting the Jersey Pass and visiting lots of places. £14 adult £12 child open 9.30-6pm daily.
