A spectacular attraction for Kamloops. Went last night and took the little train ride around the amazing wildlights all throughout the park. Beautiful. Had a delicious cup of hot chocolate and drank it by the fire. Beautiful gift shop with so many options.

Went to view the animals during the day and enjoyed seeing the grizzly bears slowly getting ready for hibernation. Also got up close and personal with the moose and his very friendly and informative keeper. Came back in the evening for Boo at the Zoo....More

This is not a normal zoo, as all animals in this wildlife park are here because they can't be released back in to the wild, due to having grown up elsewhere in captivity or injuries etc. There is a strong focus on eduction.
