The New Forest Wildlife Park


Enjoy a wildlife adventure in this lovely park, set in 25 acres of unspoilt woodland in the lovely New Forest.

Get up close to the Sika, fallow and roe deer that roam freely throughout the park and watch the excitable otters squeaking and squealing at feeding time.

There are many amazing animals to see, from several species of owls and otters to wolves, bison, wild boar, red deer, muntjac deer, Scottish wildcats, lynx, wallabies, water voles, adders, foxes, polecats, pine martens and ferrets.

Children will love the harvest mice scurrying around their mini home and the new “Go Wild” Adventure Playground is now open.
