We visited in snowy weather in mid December. Not safe to drive around main reserve that day because of the wintry conditions but plenty to see from the main car park area. Wolverine scampering in snow, red pandas & young lynx playing with a snowball...More

The staff were very friendly and most helpful. The food in the cafe was amazing and it is something I will never forget. The animals are healthy and comfortable in their surroundings. Our lovely guide who drove us around in a Landrover was very knowledgeable.

A great park. Plenty to see and do and situated amongst some fabulous scenery. Unlike many other wildlife attractions, you can actually see the animals! The park opens at 10am, get in early to catch all the animals as they’re being fed

30 minutes to drive round but at least another 90 minutes to walk round other exhibits then a first class cafe for snacks and a great gift shop.
