At the end of June 2 Red Panda Cubs were born at Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens. They are just beginning to venture out of their next and explore. It looks like a perfect time to visit and enjoy all that Cotswold Wildlife Park has to offer.
Trip Advisor has just ranked Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens as the 4th best zoo in the UK. This nomination by Trip Advisor takes into account the number and quality of reviews for zoos all over the world. Cotswold Wildlife Park was also named the 12th best zoo in Europe. If you have been there you won't be at all surprised by this accolade. If you haven't then make tracks and see for yourself the wonderful diversity of creatures, and how close you can get to them – especially in the walk through enclosures. There is plenty to keep the family busy all day, and as well as seeing the animals there is a great adventure playground – the skymaze.
Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens, the largest privately owned zoological collection in the UK, exhibits over 260 different species of animals. The Park, which lies 2 miles south of Burford, is set in 160 acres of landscaped gardens.
The animals are really accessible, with a feeding platform by the giraffes, a walk through Lemur enclosure and a walk through aviary. There are lions, anteaters, meercats, zebras, camels, red pandas and penguins to name a few.
This year a 'sky maze' has been added which is made up of interconnecting tree houses, slides and jungle bridges, climbing to a birds eye view of the park 20 feet up in the trees.
A visit to Cotswold Wildlife Park makes a great family outing…make sure you plan to be there all day!

For a fun filled day out for all the family Cotswold Wildlife Park has a lot to offer – encounter anteaters, watch the giraffes, roar with the lions or waddle with the penguins. The park has a varied collection of mammals, birds, reptiles and invertebrates for visitors to see. It is set over 160 acres of beautiful parkland, but there is a railway to ride on around the park if little legs get tired. There is also an adventure playground to run off some energy. It's a pushchair friendly venue so great for a visit while on a family holiday in the Cotswolds.
