Durrell Wildlife Park, Trinity
(4.6/5 based on 2,200+ 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. Put Durrell Wildlife Park on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Trinity trip builder.

  • This charity does so much good in the UK and around the world. It was a real pleasure to finally visit. The guide talks are a real highlight and should not be missed.

  • My step brother had his wedding here and the location was brilliant. We were allowed access the day before to set up. The staff were very helpful and there are some great photograph locations. When I go back to Jersey I will spend a day going around the park.
  • Great day out! Visited here while staying at St Helier and ouor visit happened purely by chance to coincide with Durrell Day, a celebration of the park with lots of attractions, displays and good food and drink. Loads of interesting animals to see here, including gorillas with a baby. Staff were very knowledgeable and helpful when asked and there is a building with a history of the park and its founder Gerald Durrell in which was really interesting. Well worth a visit if you are on the island.
  • This is an excellent wildlife park that emphasises the survival challenges for their many endangered species and clearly the organisation does a lot around the world. We had a long and fascinating chat with a student who's studying the aye-aye. We feel that Durrell could do more to explain that it takes 10 minutes for human eyes to adjust to the low lighting. We saw no signage outside the various aye-aye enclosures to encourage visitors that it's worth persevering. Fabulous place!
  • Got married on Jersey the day the gorilla was born in 2012, fantastic place. Great scenery. The best day was spent in the wildlife park, it's all so beautiful.
  • A wonderful zoo, specialising in protecting species. I particularly love the gorillas, orangutans and meerkats. We always have to remind our daughter that there are none of the usual zebra, giraffe etc at this zoo but she loves it. The cafes are great, there are short talks throughout the day at various enclosures and all the animals live in great environments and seem very content.
