Cotswold Wildlife Park review

Glorious gardens, adventure playgrounds and most importantly, adorable animals make Cotswold Wildlife Park the perfect attraction for little and big kids alike.

With rumours of recent arrivals including baby camels, zebras, meerkats and lemurs, the SoGlos team got its camera at the ready and headed to local animal attraction, Cotswold Wildlife Park.

Following the crowd, our first port of call was the penguin feeding display, which saw fights for fish from the birds, an interesting talk from the zookeeper and a splash zone raising plenty of giggles from children.


Alongside the glorious weather, springtime proved the perfect time to catch the park in all its glory, with beautiful baby lemurs, camels and zebra foal adding to the ‘aww’ factor.

One of SoGlos’s personal highlights was the Madagascan Walkthrough exhibit, which allowed for visitors to get up close and personal with the lemurs.


Feeling brave, SoGlos ventured into the reptile house, which boasted a fascinating and impressive collection, including one of the world’s deadliest snakes, the black mamba; and one of the largest snake species, the green anaconda.


After racing through the Invertebrates House and daring to glance at the striped-knee tarantula, we took a walk on the wild side with wolves, giraffes, lions, tapirs and rhinos in the paddocks and woodland areas.


Aside from the vast range of animals to see, Cotswold Wildlife Park’s Skymaze Adventure playground is the thing of dreams for little monkeys – with the SoGlos team wishing there was an excuse for older visitors to go and play – while the large picnic area was perfect for a relaxing break and refuel.


With all this and beautiful views across the surrounding countryside, Cotswold Wildlife Park offers a roaring day out in the great outdoors, with SoGlos’s animal-loving team giving it a firm paws-up!
