Is it a Safari? Is it a Zoo? No! It’s a Safari Zoo! South Lakes Safari Zoo (Wild Animal Park) is a park where you come face to face with the free roaming animals.
Over 1000 rare, endangered animals live in this unique, natural environment. Wander amongst wallabies, emus, lemurs and tamarins and watch out for vultures flying overhead! Children can hand feed kangaroos and deer in the Safari and buy wristbands to feed the giraffes, penguins and lemurs too.
Watch the big cats such as lions, jaguars and tigers hunt for their lunch and look out for rhinos, snow leopards and wolves to name a few. Enjoy all the sights, sounds and even smells of Europe’s only safari zoo!
