New Forest Wildlife Park details...

Nestled in the beautiful New Forest National Park you can find the New Forest Wildlife Park, with something to delight all ages.

With conservation and education at its heart, this much loved Wildlife Park is home to over 260 animals, representing 40 species, both native and from other parts of the world.

Stroll round the peaceful woodlands to discover four species of otters including the endangered Giant Otters from the Amazon, owls, wolves, lynx, Eurasian bison, mouflon, pine marten and more. Get closer to nature as you walk through the friendly deer and wallaby enclosures. Learn interesting facts and see the animals being fed as you join the friendly Animal Keepers as they feed and chat about the animals in their care.

Go Wild in the two adventure playgrounds, one for under 6’s with a sandpit, rope swing and climbing frames, and one for over 6’s with rope merry go round, rope swing, challenging high ropes, spiders web bridge and more. A great place to learn, play and exercise.

If you are looking for a more personal experience to get up close to animals, or for that special gift, a Keeper Experience may be the answer, where you will get a taste of what it is like to be a keeper for a day! Animal Adoptions also make a great gift!
