Come and visit Paradise Wildlife Park, the most interactive zoo in Britain....

Come and visit Paradise Wildlife Park, the most interactive zoo in Britain. Based at Broxbourne in Hertfordshire, we are open all year round, every weekday and weekend! The brilliant design of our enclosures means that you can meet some amazing animals face to face! We have a huge collection of over 400 animals including the best collection of big cats on display in Britain. Our cats include: white tigers, white lions, Amur tigers, Sumatran tigers, African lions, snow leopards, leopards, cheetahs and ocelots. We also have penguins, meerkats, monkeys, gibbons, lemurs, zebras, tapirs, wolves, wallabies, reptiles, birds and much, much more! We are unique because you can touch and even feed many of the animals in the Animal Park by purchasing one of our specially prepared animal feedbags. Have fun in one of our five adventure playgrounds, at the daily shows and at the meet the keeper sessions.

Paradise wildlife park in Broxbourne is a wonderful place to visit, with either young children, teenagers or just couples. The large selection of animals are well looked after. There is a large play area for children to play in, a train that goes through woods with dinasaurs in and a outside paddling pool for the summer. There is a large... More

We enjoyed a lovely day out. The animals were easy to see and the layout gave opportunities for photographs which were not marred by wire mesh. Glass panels to the enclosures were clean and overhead walkways gave clear views into the pens. I have never been so close to big cats before ... The snow leopards were amazing. Thank you,... More

We took my 2 daughters aged 5 and nearly 2 and my 2 nieces aged 8 on new yrs day. Had a really good day out. Some of the big cat enclosures seemed a bit on the small side but this is a conservation zoo and all keepers seemed very enthusiastic , knowledgeable and the animals well cared for. The... More

I bought this experience for my girlfriend but it was for 2 people so I was fortunate enough to enjoy the experience as well. It was amazing, up close and personal with these beautiful animals. Our keeper was very knowledgable and gave us lots of great information about them. We were also given t shirts, a DVD and all day... More

Enclosures were spacious with lots of opportunities for the animals to hide or be enriched. Animal Antics show was brilliant, and the keepers presenting it were more than happy to have a chat about the animals. Facilities were clean and abundant.

What a great day out, our reason for visiting was to see the big cats and we were not disappointed. But the rest of the zoo is not to be missed, we intended to stay a couple of hours and ended up there for 5 hours. Highlight of the day was seeing the white tiger being hand fed and the... More
