Attraction details
Owner description: Winner of the Legacy award ,Best Family Business 2017, Gold award for best attraction in the South-west 2012, Exmoor Zoo has become an ideal family day out. The zoo has established a good rapport with the North Devon community and offers a very hand on experience for all its visitors.Activities run throughout the day (every half hour in summer), you get to meet a bird eating spider, hold a snake, feed wallabies (under supervision), meet some of the zoos friendly furry animals and of course go to all the talks and feeding sessions (if you can)!Home to the “Exmoor Beast” (a pair of black leopards), Puma, Cheetah, Maned wolves, monkeys and lots of other unusual animals like Tamandua, Fishing cats, Tapir, Singing dogs and Binturong to just name a few! The zoo is a living place with changes all the time; no visit is ever quite the same.Useful information:• Disabled access (wheelchair provision and scooter hire)• Activities through out the day• Cafeteria• Children’s playground• Undercover picnic areas• Zoo trail.

“Love Exmoor Zoo!”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

A wonderful visit, the whole family loved it. The 'singing dogs' and the otters expecting their meals were a highlight. All the animals are well looked after and there's plenty of information.

“Good family day out”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This zoo tucked away on Exmoor has such a variety of animals with a huge play area for children it's a must visit. Much bigger than it looks with friendly staff make this an unforgettable day out.

“Great Day Out”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Have been to this attraction on many an occasion, great day out especially if you have young children. Although small in comparison to the larger zoos this is the perfect venue to bring the smaller children, they don't get to tired during the day.
