Plan Your Visit

We are open with a wide range of safety measures in place to protect you, our staff and our animals – find out more.

While we are very excited to be able to start welcoming visitors back, this is still an incredibly difficult time for our charity.

Most of our income comes from visitors but we were closed for over three months and still need to limit visitor numbers for the safety of our visitors and our staff.

You can help care for our animals and protect threatened species in Scotland and around the world - find out how.


Welcome! We want you to have a fantastic day out when visiting the Park, so please use the links below to help plan your day and make the most of your visit.

Some of our animals are active at different times of the day so it's always worthwhile revisiting an enclosure.


Our friendly staff and volunteers are on hand to help answer any questions. If you can't find what you're looking for, please contact us by telephone:  01540 651270 or email:
