Owner description: Set in the heart of the Staffordshire Peak District; Peak Wildlife Park offers a truly unique and immersive animal experience. Our large walkthroughs allow you to come face to face with exotic and endangered animals from across three continents. Whether you love lemurs, have a passion for penguins or want to wander with the wallabies (and feed them with your hand!)our park has something for you. Our regular keeper talks and on site facilities provide everything you need for an entertaining, exciting and educational day out. The kids will have a wild time enjoying our play area with space hoppers, trikes and large bouncy castle, whilst you can enjoy a relaxing hot drink and delicious snack. Once you’ve done all that…Make sure you meet our Meerkats, look out for otters, see if you can hear the Rheas and DON’T miss our african village (or our Pygmy Goats won’t be happy!). You can do all of this whilst helping to contribute to the conservation of some of the word’s most amazing animals

Peak wildlife park has had the benefit of much needed overall investment. The extensive refurbishment has given the park a much needed lift. A large parking area, easy to access park for pushchairs and wheelchair users. Animals are well cared for in clean extensive surroundings. Several enclosures where it is possible to meet the animals, goats a huge favourite with our four yr old. Wallabies on the loose, happy to hop around the visitors. Giant rabbits happy to lie in the sun and have a fuss.
Free outdoor play area consists of a giant bouncy castle. Sand pit, and play area. Plenty of picnic benches, plenty of shade, and some comfy outdoor chairs.
Definitely take a picnic as the restaurant is basic and pricey. Almost £10 for a thin oven baked artisan pizza, £5 for a sandwich, expensive cans of drinks. Though the pizza was two for the price of one if purchased after 4 pm. However. We arrived at 11 am, and by 2 pm had seen everything, spent an hour watching kids falling out on the bouncy castle, spent almost £20 on artisan ice-cream and over priced pop, we dodged the gift shop, which unfortunately is the exit. For £53 ish, two adults three children for two hours plus an hour playing we won't be rushing to return. We did visit during the summer holidays. Despite being well laid out, the volume of visitors gave the park a claustrophobic feel especially during the hourly talks on many of the animals.

Really lovely place. Opportunity to walk through enclosures with animals and you could hand feed the wallabies. Every where clean and well maintained, staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Nice little cafe and good facilities. Parking on site.

We visited the Peak Wildlife Farm on a Sunday. 6 adults and 2 children. We thoroughly enjoyed our day out and I would highly recommend a visit. There are not a huge number of animals, but I liked that because you could spend time listening to all the talks and getting close to the animals which is hard to do at larger places. I thought it was educational. I would visit again.

Its a nice place that was under an hour from our home but is in the middle of nowhere. There are animal to see but it not a full day place and i think for that alittle on the expensive side for what they charge on entrance but my kids did enjoy it and i think i would go again.
