Animal-inspired family fun at Wild Place Project


Travel through habitats of the world on the edge of Bristol with safari-style animal encounters & family activities at Wild Place

Barefoot trails, sweeping meadows, large habitat-themed enclosures and woodland walks make for exciting outdoor adventures at Bristol’s Wild Place Project. A fairly new addition to the city’s extensive array of family attractions, Wild Place is an extension of Bristol Zoo Gardens which places emphasis on protecting threatened habitats around the world.

See zebra and eland grazing in ‘Edge of Africa’ grassland, spot cheetahs in the 'Mahali Pori National Park', wander through a compound of scampering lemurs and keep your peepers open for wolves in Wolf Wood. The Fun Fort is under cover - perfect for changeable weather days and thrill-seekers will love the ultimate adrenaline adventure, 'Leap of Faith' with seven different challenges on offer.

Wild Place hosts themed events throughout the year - last autumn’s activities included a ‘Bat Walk’ and Halloween Festival packed with animal encounters, ghostly tales and trails and creepy crafts.
