Home to over 260 different animal species, Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens stands as the most diverse privately owned zoo in the UK. Here you can explore 65 hectares (160 acres) of exhibits. The aviary houses include a Humboldt penguin enclosure and the Tropical House, containing lush vegetation, colorful birds, and free-roaming sloths. Head through Woodland Walk to see South American species, such as the giant anteater and Brazilian tapir. In other exhibits, spot Asiatic lions, white rhinoceroses, zebras, and giraffes. As you make your way around the premises, take time to admire the many exotic plantings in the various gardens. Make sure you also leave time to ride the narrow-gauge railway, which is just under 1.6 km (1 mi) and passes California redwood trees and giant rhubarbs.

We go here every year without fail. It has something for everyone. The play area is fantastic and they also have a train. The animals are well cared for. It is a great place for a family day out. The restaurant serves hot meals and is reasonably priced. It also has many spots for a picnic. If you haven't been please visit. The ticket prices are so cheap compared to other safari parks and zoos
An excellent day out. Lots to see and do for a good price. All the animals are well looked after and kept In large enclosures which you can get really good views of.
