Paradise Wildlife Park is voted Hertfordshire’s No.1 Outdoor Attraction by Trip Advisor and set in the beautiful surrounding of Broxbourne Woods in the heart of the Hertfordshire Countryside.
Paradise is home to over 800 exotic wild animals including one of the best big cat collections in the country with a pride of white lions, tigers, jaguars and snow leopards as well as also being home to and caring for endangered species such as red pandas, gibbons, lemurs, penguins, small monkeys like our pygmy marmoset who have just had their second baby, camels, zebra, otters and reptiles, including the largest anaconda in the UK.
Paradise is also Europe’s leading wildlife park for exotic animal experiences, you can do everything from meeting our Meerkats, tickle our tapirs, hand-feed our red pandas to shadowing a keeper and hand-feeding a big cat. Funds raised from these animal experiences go directly to the conservation and welfare of the animals in our care and in the wild.
We have recently completed a brand-new tiger habitat: ’Land of the tigers’ with underwater viewing, the first of its kind in the UK. The tigers’ new home is also the first big cat mixed habitat; an assortment of beautiful fish within the pool presents another first for the UK.
Paradise Wildlife Park was formed in 1984 and is already well known for its animal breeding and conservation work. In 2017, we became the charity Zoological Society of Hertfordshire and to date, the Park has made contributions of over £6,000,000 to conservation projects and wildlife causes in the UK and around the world, as well as other charities and good causes. It is also part of the European Endangered Species Breeding Programme, with successful jaguar, African penguin, lar gibbon, cotton-top tamarin, silvery marmoset, black lemur and red ruff lemur births in the past 2 years alone. With recommendations to breed snow leopards, red pandas, gibbons and African penguins in 2021.

I visited Paradise Wildlife Park with my husband, teenage daughter and 5 year old son...there really is something for everyone to see and enjoy! We took the little train around the World of Dinosaurs which thoroughly entertained my son, he loved the life size moving dinosaurs! There are also plenty of play areas around the park to keep little ones busy! There are lots of animals to discover too, we particularly enjoyed watching the feeding of the penguins and tigers along with listening to the informative talks by the keepers. A highlight of the day for us all was most definitely being able to observe the big cats. The White Lions , Tigers and Snow Leopards are majestic and beautiful...a real treat to be able to see so close up! We were also lucky enough to visit on the weekend that Santa arrived at the park and took residence in his grotto! We enjoyed listening to a live performance of classic Christmas songs whilst browsing the Christmas market selling some beautiful hand made crafts. We will definitely return for another visit in the Spring and would highly recommend a day at Paradise to any family, whatever age group. Fabulous day out!!
