  • Fantastic Zoo. It is well worth making time to Loved my visit here with my college class. One of the keepers hopped on our minibus and took us on a tour of the reserve. He was brilliant. Sadly I missed his name. I'm up and down the A9 often enough, so will definitely be back again.
  • A great range of animals with informative signs in case you miss the numerous talks and feeding sessions like we did. A wee trail/hunt for the kids to find clues. A wide range of well looked after animals in enriched and sizable enclosures. Well done to all the staff for maintaining a high standard of animal welfare and customer service.
  • Really great, friendly and helpful staff. Lots of animals/activities. Several places to eat, picnic tables and kids play areas. Highlight is the drive through. Free wheelchair rental also.
  • Brilliant. From yorkshire, i have been to the Yorkshire wildlife park twice, and loved it. This is very similar, but has a drive around section. Brill
  • Having visited the highland safari park with my partner we found the whole experience such a wonderful treat and found the animals cared for very well with large open spaces for them to roam around unlike a lot of zoos in the UK. Its a great day out for young and old and plenty to see! Allow yourself plenty of hours to see all as its open 10am to 4pm 7 days a week. Well done to all the staff who are most helpful to visitors and the café is truly clean with good food and drinks etc.. Would definitely be calling again to see it all over again.
