A trip to Paradise Wildlife Park in Broxbourne really is a special day out for the family. This family-run Hertfordshire animal park offers visitors the opportunity to explore and get up close to an amazing collection of animals. Some of these include the snow leopard, ocelot, white lion, white tiger, cheetah, zebra, camel, wolf, reindeer, tapir, gibbon, marmoset and armadillo.
Look out for the reptiles, birds and penguins and small mammals, including the meerkat, red panda, raccoon, otters and lemurs. Meet the Keeper talks and animal feeding times run throughout the day. This is a great opportunity to learn more about individual species direct from the animal’s handler.
Several shows a day take place at the Birds of Paradise Arena and Jungle Theatre and these are all different, informative as well as enjoyable. Other attractions include the Tumble Jungle indoor play area where little ones can let off steam, a giant snake slide and bouncy castle, five adventure playgrounds, various children’s rides, Paradise Lagoon paddling pool, perfect to cool off in on hot summer days, a Speedway Museum and for a small additional charge the Dinosaur Woodland Railway and an 18-hole Safari Adventure Golf course.
A great way to see the animals is by taking a tractor trailer ride around the park and adds to the fun. Animal Experience Days, Shadow a Keeper and Jungle
Sleepovers enable visitors to go behind the scene and find out first hand what it takes to care for the animals, learning interesting facts about them along the way. Be sure not to miss the Wings of Paradise Flying displays, when conditions permit. Why not hold a birthday party at Paradise Wildlife Park? It will certainly be a memorable day for guests also. Please see website for more details.
I went to Paradise Wildlife Park with my wife a few months back and we had a great day. Loads of animals to see and the layout of the park allowed us to get a lot closer to the action than is possible at many other wildlife parks and zoos. The big cat area was particularly unique as you could use an elevated wooden bridge network to get an unobstructed, elevated view of the lions & tigers (that gave you a real idea of their size!). We don't have kids but there were lots of additional rides, playgrounds & food stops that looked like they would also be a hit for a family trip. Only minor negative was that certain more enclosed areas of the park were a little busy but given that we went at the weekend (when the weather was good) this was always bound to be the case. Great day out, thoroughly recommended.
