Lovely, pleasant place to go, friendly welcoming people. Loads of wild animals to see. Unfortunately no lions! I loved the polar bears. Will go back next time I'm up there. Amazing grounds which is huge!

I would actually give it more than 5 stars if I could ... I'm not a great fan of zoos as I hate seeing sad animals, out of their natural habitat. However, I decided to give the Highland Wildlife park a go. And I'm so...More

Lots of animals to see, nice drive round with the car but main event was the walking area - see tigers, polar bears, wolves (& cubs) and more. Nicely large enclosures, no sense of cramming, and the walk helps tire out an excitable young one....More

I did not see anyone using a motorbike. Not a a good idea. You are far safer to go in a car as there are some large beasties there like bison who could charge you if threatened!
