Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web
See over 130 species of animals at Durrell Wildlife Park, a conservation center with a focus on rare and endangered creatures. The park's 13 hectares (32 acres) feature landscaped parkland, water gardens, and native habitat areas in a more natural setting than many zoos offer. Stroll through exhibits dedicated to Asian birds, rain forest creatures, reptiles and amphibians, gorillas, orangutans, lemurs, and more. Add an animal encounter to your visit to spend 30 minutes with an animal of your choice in an area that other visitors can't access. Or, sign up as "keeper for a day" to assist a zookeeper for an entire working day. Make sure you book these special experiences in advance, because they fill up quickly. If you want to spend more time in the environs, camp for the night in one of the park's well-appointed tents.

  • Beautiful, beautiful place with conservation at it's heart. We stopped at the campsite in the park and were awoken by Leemas each morning. Such a wonderful / relaxing place to be.
  • Lasting impression: conservation-focused zoo, founded by Gerald Durell, filled with amazing animals whose futures are under threat Our experience: we love this wildlife park... We've been a couple of times and found different things to explore and the animals are fascinating to watch. The staff were happy to talk about the animals and there seemed to be plenty for the whole family, the first time we went, we loved the tamarin monkeys running above our heads in the trees and the next time, we found the lemurs and thought they were gorgeous. If you're quiet and patient, the aye aye enclosures are fascinating. The food in the cafe was generous and hearty and we've been unable to walk through the charity shop at the exit without finding something to buy. The verdict: we will definitely keep going back. Apart from being a great place to spend time, we love how it is conservation-focused and also, that we learn something new each time we go.
  • It's interesting enough, and the conservation work they do is laudable. The wildlife park itself doesn't actually have that many animals and it's pretty expensive to get in!
  • Come here as a member almost weekly with our little boy. The work they do for conservation is amazing.
  • Absolutely fantastic a childhood dream realised and am now sixty. Brilliant, brilliant and brilliant.
