We went with little expectations with 6 children from 18 to a baby and they all really enjoyed themselves. The creature meet was well presented and informative and to see the armadillo was my personal favourite. Great time was had by all

The Axe Valley wildlife park packs a large veriety of domestic and exotic animals into a small but well laid out space. Everything felt loved and well looked after and there were several play stops for when small ones began to flag. The whole experience...More

There is a lot more to see here than you might think. Probably well over 60 species. The most important thing is that the animals look content and appear to be well looked after. The enclosures are well designed so in most cases you can...More

We popped in to visit during the summer holidays. It didn't take very long as it's quite small. The entire park is in need of an update and animal enclosures do need to be upgraded in some areas. The animals though looked happy and cared...More

Was supposed to be going paddle boarding but it was too windy, so last minute jumped in the car from Seaton and what a great impromptu plan it was. Six of us went aged 25 and loved it. I visited a few years back and...More

Our son just loved this wildlife park, there's lots of everyday animals and then the more unusual variety that you don't always get to see, it's a small but perfectly formed park. Feeding the guinea pigs with the fishing rods was such fun and something...More

Nice little Zoo with some unusual animals you don't always see in Zoo's. The only downside was that the Capybara didn't have a pond to swim in which is odd seeing that they are aquatic mammals.

Thankyou for your review. Glad you enjoyed seeing our unusual collection. Just to clarify though, we do have a pond in the Capybara enclosure. A must have for this species as you said. Used regularly especially during the very warm spell we had.
