“Go on the Land Rover Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We were two of only four people in the course of what looked like a really busy day to donate £1 extra to go on the land rover tour with one of the park rangers. Definitely worth it! The ranger pointed out sights and told stories about the park's animals that we would otherwise not have known. Really enhanced the experience. All in all a great day out if you are willing to walk around a bit, some steep bits, and look closely at the animals behaving naturally. We were lucky enough to see the polar bears wrestling about 10 feet away from us.

“Great variety of animals in lots of space”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Roaring tiger takes a morning dip in front of crowds. Playful polar bears ham it up for drivers. Snow monkeys swarm at feeding time. Great for kids and adults alike. Good playgrounds :-) Healthy food at cafe

“Highland Wildlife park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Family visited the park on Friday 7th June. Entrance price very reasonable. Excellent value, self drive scenery magnificent. I would wait for a few weeks before visiting again, as Dominique the Tiger has given birth to 2 cubs and they will be going on show in approx. 4 weeks time, also some Snow monkeys have been born and will also be going on show about the same time, the area for the Red panda is cordoned off as the panda is pregnant. On the hole it is a great day out and we would highly recommend it.

“Great day out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

We had a fantastic time at this wildlife park. The enclosures are big and the animals seem happy. The park is very well maintain and set out. There isn't a huge amount of animals to see but the polar bears more than make up for that! Unfortunately, some of the animals were cordoned off due to breeding which is more than understandable. Very reasonable price for entry.

“Poor, sad looking animals. Very overpriced.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

First and last visit. Hot, sunny day, not much too see. Many of the enclosures out of bounds for different reasons. Tigers and polar bears pacing was a distressing sight. Toilet block was a throwback to a different era. Kids playground saved the day. Very pricey for what was on offer.
