Cotswold Wildlife Park rhinos

One of Oxfordshire’s top attractions and one of the most beautiful wildlife parks in the country, Cotswold Wildlife Park is a superb mix of animals, landscaped parkland and gardens, appealing to all ages. Many of the animals are rare and endangered, visitors can walk through the Madagascar enclosure with free-roaming lemurs, and see meerkats, penguins and tropical birds in the exotically landscaped Walled Gardens. This is particularly colourful mid to late summer.

Elsewhere, as visitors meander around the park, amongst the animals to be seen are rhinos, lions, giraffes and, for the first time at the Park, anteaters. Indoor exhibits include the Reptile House, Invertebrate House, Tropical House and Farmyard Barn.

Visitors can enjoy a picnic, ride on the narrow-gauge railway and explore the adventure playground.

Facilities are excellent for both able-bodied and disabled visitors with wheelchair access to all exhibits and to the cafeteria, which serves hot and cold meals throughout the year.
