Billed as one of the best conservation zoos in England, the wild inhabitants of South Lakes Safari Zoo reside on 6.9 hectares (17 acres) of land designed to help them feel right at home. The highlight is the African section, which is split into different enclosures. A pair of pygmy hippopotamuses and a slue of mandrills occupy one. In another, you'll see white rhinoceroses, baboons, and giraffes. Hundreds of other species populate other enclosures spread throughout the park. Pay a visit to Maki Restaurant for a bite to eat, and grab a seat on the restaurant's deck for a view of the rhinos, giraffes, and baboons.

  • Had a day out with a good friend catching up.. what a lovely place for a day trip. The big cats were a bit shy but that didn't spoil the day. If you're with someone in a wheelchair be prepared for a workout there are some steep paths All in all though fab day out we paid the extra £5 to feed the giraffes. You can also pay to feed the leemas and the penguins. There are other experience you can pay for like feeding the tigers or the sloths I think they are £35, which would be a great birthday treat for someone. Clean park, friendly staff animals look happy and seem relaxed .. nice family day out.
  • This zoo exceeded my expectations. We had a wonderful day out and loved that we could get close to many animals. There was multiple feeding opportunities to observe and the chance to learn about the animals behaviours. There is a good variety of animals and opportunities to feed the animals at a fair price. We had bought a Groupon voucher which was good value for money but would definitely pay the zoos full priced entry as it is a good zoo. The zoo also has a fantastic play area and well stocked gift shop. As we visited in low season it wasn't too busy and most of the cafes were closed.
