From Wallaby Walkabout to land of the Tigers and a brand new anteater all the kids' furry favourites are here at Yorkshire Wildlife Park! They also have a brand new elevated tiger walk so they can get more out of life and you can get more out of them! Ever seen tiger's belly? You can now! There also new black rhinos and polar bears on site too.
Come and enjoy over 70 acres of animal encounters, with some walk through sections to get up close and nose to nose with creatures like lemurs and wallabies! A great range of well kept animals and birds including the most endangered carnivore in Africa: the Painted Hunting Dog! Wonderful chance for kids who think they know it all to encounter some animals they've never even heard of!
Very recently Yorkshire Wildlife Park has officially opened both a purpose built giraffe enclosure plus Leopard Heights, the ground-breaking open topped enclosure that will bring you eye to eye with the Amur Leopard, the most endangered carnivore in the world! From the 100 sq m viewing platform visitors come face to face with the leopards as they scale their 10m high climbing frames.
At ground level of the 6000 sq m enclosure there is a viewing area with a 10m long glass wall to complete the spectacular creation, which is the largest leopard enclosure in the world!
Other highlights include the Shadow a Ranger and Junior Ranger experiences! These give kids in a variety of age brackets the chance to see what it's like as a job: this could be the start of their career!

It may be worth checking out Yorkshire Wildlife Park's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact Yorkshire Wildlife Park before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
The Park will open at 10am and will close at 6pm daily, subject to weather and excluding Xmas.

5* plenty of animals, work on-going for a "Walkthrough" with rhinos and zebras in progress just to name a few animals. Yearly adult ticket £55 for adults. Regular feeding and educational talks daily. Staff very passionate and knowledgeable about the animals and conservation the park is involved with. Plenty of seating areas for picnics, classrooms too for groups and classes visiting. Thoroughly relaxing, informative and enjoyable day spent there. Bought a yearly ticket and already been again.
