Marwell Wildlife is a wildlife park set in 140 beautifully landscaped acres of Colden Common countryside. It is home to over 180 exotic and endangered species, making it an ideal destination for an educative, yet thrilling day out. The animal enclosures are all designed to simulate the animals’ natural surroundings.
Exhibit as much of their natural behaviour as possible. For example, the African valley is home to herds of giraffes, zebra and waterbuck. Here you’ll also see ostriches roaming.
The newly opened Savannah Tracks is a wide open enclosure for the cheetahs. Greet them from the wooden walkway which meanders through it. Hang around with swinging Siamang gibbons or try to spot lizards, piranhas and dwarf crocodiles in the tropical rainforest area!
Check out the sand cats and dwarf mongooses, or find out what an addax is and how it can survive for a year without drinking water!
You’ll get especially close to the reptiles and invertebrates in Encounter Village. To learn even more about the natural world, the animal keepers will tell you more about the animals they care for during special feeding talks! For more information, visit the website of Marwell Wildlife.
