Isle of Wight Zoo, Sandown

3.6
#1 of 6 in Parks in Sandown
If you're a fan of big cats or interested in the wildlife of Madagascar, head to Isle of Wight Zoo. Here you'll find a handful of African lions, jaguars, and tigers, one of which is white. In the Madagascan exhibits, you'll see ring-tailed, black-and-white ruffed, red ruffed, and mongoose lemurs, among others. You can also view spider monkeys and capuchins. Take a tour to learn more about the zoo's big cats (check the schedule ahead of time, as it varies according to season). The zoo also houses a few wallabies, and you can interact with them by purchasing a token at the entrance for a small extra fee.

  • We had the lemur feeding experience and it was incredible! It's clear how much the animals are loved, the staff really know their stuff, and their focus is definitely in the right place - conservation. A great way to spend a couple of hours!

  • Great time doing the big cat training experience. Really well run place that puts the well-being of the animals absolutely first. Can’t wait to go back.
  • Lovely zoo, small but with a great selection of animals. You can get quite close to the big cats. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. The food in the cafe is well priced and tasty. Don't pay for a car parking ticket it is included in the zoo ticket price.
  • Enjoyed visiting here, managed to get in and around using a wheelchair, and to access all of the attractions and displays. Staff were attentive and helpful willing to guide and offer direction or advice, excellent facilities for having breaks and drinks or visiting the toilets. Would go visit again as had a most enjoyable day with the bonus of it being a fort with local and relevant history of its use displayed for the pluto project after D| Day,
