Winner of the Legacy award ,Best Family Business 2017, Gold award for best attraction in the South-west 2012, Exmoor Zoo has become an ideal family day out. The zoo has established a good rapport with the North Devon community and offers a very hand on experience for all its visitors.Activities run throughout the day (every half hour in summer), you get to meet a bird eating spider, hold a snake, feed wallabies (under supervision), meet some of the zoos friendly furry animals and of course go to all the talks and feeding sessions (if you can)!Home to the “Exmoor Beast” (a pair of black leopards), Puma, Cheetah, Maned wolves, monkeys and lots of other unusual animals like Tamandua, Fishing cats, Tapir, Singing dogs and Binturong to just name a few! The zoo is a living place with changes all the time; no visit is ever quite the same.Useful information:• Disabled access (wheelchair provision and scooter hire)• Activities through out the day• Cafeteria• Children’s playground• Undercover picnic areas• Zoo trail.

We were here in October with our 12 month daughter. We had a great walk around the zoo within an hour. If I am honest, we both thought that was it and a little dissappointed. However, we went to the 'encounter zone' where we held...More

Exmoor zoo is a bit of a hidden gem - it's not really a zoo I'd heard of before, but we really enjoyed our visit with my partner and her grandmother. I wasn't quite sure to expect, but I've visited a few zoos and have...More
