Tyler Whitnall from Paradise Wildlife Park in Broxbourne explains what events and attractions they have planned for this summer.

1. A place for the family to eat, play and learn

Trek through natural woodlands to the World of Dinosaurs and discover the park’s 30 life-size animatronic dinosaurs. Thrill-seekers will enjoy the realistic movements and sounds.

Children can learn about the extinction of the dinosaurs and the work that’s being done to help preserve the animals of today.

Refuel at the Safari diner. There’s a variety of hot and cold food on offer. You can relax in the outdoor seating area while the children play on one of the nearby playgrounds.

2. Get up close and personal with the wild animals

“Check out the Lion Pride Lands,” Tyler said. “It’s an incredible new habitat for our white lion pride, where you can stand an inch away from an adult male white lion and really take in the size and beauty of these amazing animals.”

Paradise Wildlife Park is one of the few places in the UK where you can hand-feed lions, tigers and snow leopards. Picture: Paradise Wildlife ParkParadise Wildlife Park is one of the few places in the UK where you can hand-feed lions, tigers and snow leopards. Picture: Paradise Wildlife Park

Visit the tropical rainforest exhibits for your chance to interact with animals native to the Amazon rainforest.

“We just recently welcomed a new addition to the family. Our newly born Pygmy marmoset is one of the smallest monkey species in the world. They only usually weigh around 100g, even when fully grown!”

You can also visit the park’s collection of big cats, mammals, birds and farmyard animals.

3. Life-changing experiences and educational tours

From August, the park will re-launch several of their experiences and tours.

“We’re one of the few places in the UK where you can hand-feed lions, tigers and snow leopards,” Tyler said.

“Spend time with some of our cutest residents when you book one of our ‘meet the meerkats or red panda experiences.”

“You can feed the animals and learn about the conservation work that’s been done to help protect them.”

Pre-book your tickets

Use the online booking system to buy your tickets and choose your arrival time. Families will be given a half an hour slot to help stagger arrivals and reduce waiting times and the rest of the day to explore the park once you enter.

“We’re limiting the number of tickets available each day to avoid overcrowding and keep everyone safe,” Tyler said.

“We’ve implemented a one-way system through the park and social distancing is in place across the site. We’ve also installed additional hand sanitiser stations to help keep everyone as safe as possible during their visit.”

“We can’t thank the local community enough for their continued support and we look forward to welcoming everyone back over the coming months,” Tyler added.
