I went last easter and watched a monkey trying to escape without getting electrocuted by using a stick on the wires. People and their kids were laughing and taking pictures, but I thought this is animal cruelty and left. Clever monkey, stupid humans. Wildlife 'park', not.

In just one word.... fantastic. But as I need to add some more words for this review, I'll add those famous words of 'Wallace and Grommit': "A grand day out'. The restaurant area is nice, with a quest area just for adults only... having soft comfy seats but the foot and drinks are a bit on the expensive side, but... More

Caught the bus to the Durrell wildlife park, and spent the day there, which included myself, my four year old son and my sister. Spent the entire day there to make the most of it. The entrance doesn't include the guide book cost which was an extra £3, we choose not yo purchase one. Can't compliment enough on the space,... More

The Wildlife Park is not a zoo- its fascination lies in the fact that it is trying to preserve endangered species and to educate people about their role in protecting the environment. A long time admirer of Gerald Durrell and his work I booked a place in an Animal Encounter tour. I was taken to visit the Andean Bears and... More

The coach picked us up from the hotel and dropped us back lots to see plenty of places to sit and two nice restaurants. Plenty of information given about the animals and friendly staff willing to help

This is the first time we have visited this park and what a lovely day it was. The enclosures were well kept and the animals seemed quite happy. It is well laid out and all the animals have plenty of space. It was a lovely hot day when we were there so some of the animals were in hiding. I... More

.....for its conservation work and the chance to see endangered species being cared for in a way that will make a difference. Amazed to see gorilla's and oranutan's with young which I think must show how content they are, as well as safe. The park was well maintained and all enclosures suited to the animals being looked after there. Don't... More

Informative talks at various times of the day about some of the animals here. Well kept park, lovely to see the animals having so much space and stimulus to roam around. Excellent café selling the hugest portions of yummy cakes - one piece between the two of us was still difficult to manage! Allow yourself a whole day to visit... More

We stayed in the new campsite in the first week in July, and I cannot praise it highly enough. The yurt was massive, with carpeting, a double bed, plenty of storage and a wood burner for when it got cooler in the evening. The kids (8 & 12) had their own teepee to stay in, and were delighted with how... More
