Lovely little zoo in Shaldon. Meerkats, Lemurs and much more. Worth a visit. Good for little people at any time of the year.

This is a lovely mini cute zoo with lots of different animals.It is built on a hill in amongst the trees.The animals are very friendly and don't bark at you. As it is quite hilly it would be a big struggle to get a pushchair around on the narrow pathways. My children loved it and the staff are very friendly... More

This small zoo which is situated in a small south Devon village may be hidden away in a corner, however it deserves to be much better known. The zoo is l;coated in an acre of woodland, with lots of interesting enclosures housing smaller endangered species. The species on show range from small primates to meerkats, nocturnal mammals, other smaller mammals,... More

It's quite expensive for the size... other than that it's brilliant. The animals are clearly well looked after, it's set on a small hillside cliff that's a great location. It has quite a number of animals for its size, some very rare and unique! It's a lovely place to visit

A very nice find. Not a huge park but very well laid out. A nice selection of animals all in fantastic condition. We really enjoyed our visit.

This is such a well run, well maintained and easy place to visit. Limited in relation to larger zoos but lots of monkey species. We were there under an hour so it's good for a short visit or extend this taking in the views, take a picnic, get a drink at the Ness Hotel or pop to the beach!

A wonderful zoo where the animals a clearly well looked after and seem very content. The zoo itself is not a large one (though this is reflected in a fair price) but can fill an afternoon. My young family loved the monkeys being so close

A lovely little place where the animals appear content and well cared for. The keeper talk was very interesting and encouraged questions. Lots of information about the animals and general conservation throughout the wildlife park - really good for both adults and children. Fun to feed the meerkats too!

The Wildlife trust is one of the reasons we return to Shaldon again and again - the other being the Clifford Arms. The zoo is laid out along the side of a hill and you wind your way up and down again passed the various animal enclosures. Quiet and secluded the trust is almost entirely staffed by volunteers and has... More

I went to Shaldon Zoo with a friend and her two children, we all really loved it, all the animals are very well cared for and the staff lovely and very happy to answer any questions we had. We loved the talking parrots and we got to see quite a few baby animals that i don't think you would get... More
