Attraction Information

Journey deep, down into the woods and discover a wonderful, wildlife surprise in New Forest Wildlife Park.

You will meet indigenous species in their natural surroundings as you venture down the woodland trail, catching your breath as you spot animals in their natural habitat.  Set in 25 acres of the New Forest there is a vast range of animals to visit, from loveable Asian short-clawed otters, mighty European Bison to the magnificent Red Deer to name a few.

Friendly keepers are on-hand throughout the day to give you further information during feeding time and talks, and little and big kids alike will love the sand pits, diggers, slides, climbing frames and swings in the ‘Go Wild’ and ‘Mini Go Wild’ adventure playgrounds.   

A really wild sense of discovery, play and adventure!
