Took the family out here today and it was great, £30 for all 4 of us and we were there for hours. The animals looked happy and in great condition, the only thing to let the place down was the cafe which robbed me £12 for two sandwiches two juices and a packet of crisps. Take your own snacks and... More

A sleety day in March may not have been the best day to visit the wildlife park but had it's benefits in that the animals had no undergrowth to hide in. The lynx were all out and looked beautiful, the polar bears also came out to see us. I have to say I felt sorry for the solo male who... More

Beautiful surroundings. Grand snacks and meals. Very busy parking area, not enough disabled parking. Great to see the polar bears swimming and swaying, enjoying themselves. Found some of the trails a bit hilly for the older person - some areas not accessible with a wheelchair. Dog walking area very good. Nice day out.

Had a fantastic visit at the park, animals have plenty of space, knowledgeable staff and so many animals not present at other zoos. Highly recommend taking the bus tour to find out more about the animals. However, no dogs are allowed to sit in your car at the park. It's not advertised on their entrance sign or any of their...

We visited the Park for the first time last week. The Park was bigger and much better than we expected. If you have preconceptions about animal parks, is one of the modern thinking ones. The animal enclosures appeared large and had plenty of interesting things for their residents. All the animals appeared to be in good condition and did not... More

We have been here 3 times - kids always want to go back whenever we are in the Highlands. Rather than take your own vehicle around the park you can book to go on the tour mini buses - you only pay a donation for this and you will have one of the park staff driving who will explain all... More

It's alright. £30 for two adults entry and £1.85 for a CAN of Coke. Would definitely recommend taking lunch with you. Overall experience was enjoyable except the Mediocre Cafe food. Animals are all in good health and most were viewable.

We enjoyed a fabulous day here. The staff were friendly and there were so many different talks and feeding of the animals. We loved the walk about area and arrived in time to watch the snow monkeys being fed. They were so interesting and the lady explained so much about them. Lots of them had youngsters who entertained the visitors... More
