Dartmoor Zoological Park

Dartmoor, Devon

Lions and tigers and meerkats; oh my! Situated in an idyllic Dartmoor setting, visit the home of 'We Bought a Zoo' for wild and wonderful animals.

Inspiring the Hollywood film We Bought a Zoo, visit this quirky attraction and experience over 200 animals including bears, otters, meerkats, monkeys, wolves, lions, and tigers, and the largest collection of big cats in the South West. 

If you fancy getting up close and personal with some of the animals at the zoo, there are plenty of experiences to choose from for all ages, from Keeper for a Day to Rangers, there's something for everyone!

The zoo runs a fantastic, award-winning education programme and Dartmoor is an accredited centre for Learning Outside the Classroom.
