What can I expect from my visit?

It will be a new Paradise experience, with amazing new species to see plus all your favourites to revisit. More details HERE


Face coverings are mandatory in ALL INDOOR AREAS within the Park until 19th July and then in the JungleBarn only after the 19th July. When you leave the Park, you can either go via the Gift Shop wearing a face-covering, or you can leave though a door direct back to the car park without a face-covering.

From the 19th July in the JUNGLEBARN PLAY CENTRE. Due to the increase and expected continued increase in virus cases, and to help protect our staff and visitors and keep the JungleBarn open, we require anyone over the age of 11 using the indoor JungleBarn Play Centre to wear a face covering unless exempt.

A ‘face covering’ is something which safely covers the nose and mouth, and these will be available to buy if you do not have one with you. Face coverings will not be required for other areas of the Park from the 19th. However, you are more than welcome to wear one at all times if you wish.

There are a few people who are exempt which include:

  • Children under the age of 11
  • Not being able to put on, wear or remove a face covering because of a physical or mental illness/impairment or disability
  • If putting on, wearing, or removing a face covering will cause you severe distress
  • If you are travelling with or providing assistance to someone who relies on lip reading to communicate
  • To avoid harm or injury, or the risk of harm or injury, to yourself or others.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation with this.
