Plan Your Visit

Our drive-through tours have been postponed until further notice

Coach Guide

We offer guided tours of the park's drive-through reserves, where our staff will join you on your coach. We can cover many topics relating to Scottish wildlife and natural history. Tours are available for groups of 15 or more individuals only and group rates apply, plus a small charge of £30 for the services of the guide. Bookings should be made at least two weeks in advance and can be weather dependant.

To enquire about availability of a group visit or coach party to the park, you can phone 0131 314 0378 or email

If you would like an educational visit, please email or phone 0131 314 0324.

Please note:

Enquiries will be followed up with either an email or phone call to confirm the booking.

Please note that the reserve may shut in severe wintry weather.

Photography Days

Spend the day with our experienced guide and keepers, who will accompany your group as you explore the park with your camera. The day will begin before the park is open to the public. Perhaps you would like to get close enough to a polar bear or tiger for them to breathe on your camera lens? We'll provide a safe opportunity for you to get that close-up shot that wouldn't be possible on a normal visit to the park.

For more information about our photography days, you can phone 0131 314 0378 or email
