“Very interesting!”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

Although wolves were in large enclosures (NB. no visitor interaction) and the footprint of the Centre isn't huge the guides were very informative and offered visitors a deeper understanding of the plight of wolves when dealing with their worst enemy.....humans. Their struggle to survive as well as their group dynamics are fascinating. Magnificent creatures! It should be noted that when taken out on their walks the gates are left open so should they decide not to return to the protection of the enclosures created for them, they are free to leave. They never do leave so being the intelligent creatures they are they too must think the Centre is a good place :)

“Good way to get the facts about Wolfs.”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

Stopped when it was raining but didn't dampen anyone's mood. Staff was very friendly and informative. We arrived halfway thru one the guide’s talks and stuck around for the 2nd guide's talk as well; each gave the same basic info but added their own spin. Saw the interaction with one of the Wolf's gave back from exercising and had to confirm his place in the pack.

Would reccomend this to everyone just the basic knowledge of Wolfs but don't expect too much personal interaction as you don't get any closer than the fences allow (app 4 feet).

“What an experience”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Despite a downpour, Daniel stood out in the rain like a trouper (while all of us were undercover) and gave a great 1/2 hour talk about wolves. I didn't know much about them when we got there, and it was fascinating. And we were lucky enough to hear them howl all together as a group! Going here was an experience I'm never going to forget.

“Very Interesting”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

A very small place.They give an extremely interesting talk expelling many myths about wolves.The wolves are in an enclosure and slept most of the time we were there but were lovely to see.We missed the walk with the wolf by about 15 mins which was unfortunate we would of loved to of gone.Not much else there apart from the wolves,so don't expect to spend more than hour there.The gift shop had some nice things
