As of 28 Sept this attraction is closed until April 2017. This is such a pity it is not open, however it has obviously been poorly managed over recent years with bankruptcy proceedings etc etc

We visited some time ago. The animal collection is impressive, but the highlight was paying a little extra to spend time playing with and feeding 3 white tiger cubs, An experience of a lifetime!

The park was not open when we visited. Not sure when or if it will reopen. Check before driving out there.

This was a good place to visit. You have to go on a feeding tour as that is more interactive. The place has been closed for over a year now but when it opens would go again

I have been a fan of ZWP for year, watching the Lion Man repeats on British TV so I was extremely excited about this and it lived up to my expectations. I paid $60.00 on a GrabOne Voucher (normal cost $80.00 - Make sure you...More

I am going to NZ in January 2016 and to visit the white lions has been a dream for many years. What are the chance of getting into the park based on the information I have read regarding their financial troubles and closure etc. Help, very unhappy future visitor

I just got off the phone to the owner of what is now called the Wildlife Sanctuary. The new owners came on board around 18 months ago and have embarked on major remedial work required for the enclosures. What this means is... More
