A few weeks ago we went to review the big cats feeding experience at Paradise Wildlife Park. It was awesome and much better than I could of ever imagined. After the experience we were able to take the boys around the park.
This was their first visit to the park and although some sections were closed, we all had a lovely day. We started with a quick look at the lorikeets. Unfortunately, due to restrictions to prevent bird flu, we were unable to feed the birds nectar, which is usually available for an extra cost. Having spoken to the park ranger about the precautions, it really became clear that the park are putting the welfare of their animals and birds first, doing everything that they can to stop any cases.
We then had our big cat feed experience with a beautful white tiger. A red letter moment.
We then had the rest of the day to explore Paradise Wildlife Park. The boys liked that there was some play equipment dotted around, to keep them happy. We ate lunch at the main restaurant. It wasn’t anything special and if you don’t mind just having a sandwich, I would recommend eating at the cafe that looks over the tigers.
The boys didn’t want to be left out on feeding animals. We purchased some food and they fed some goats and friendly alpacas.
We all loved watching the meerkats. There are two different areas that you can see them. One has a tunnel that the children can crawl through and the other has hanging lamps which the meerkats used to keep warm. I could spend ages watching them.
We went to see the penguin talk and it was funny watching them wait for their keeper to come out with the fish.
We didn’t have time to fit anymore into the day, so will just have to return another time. If you have a dinosaur fan, this weekend saw the opening of their World of Dinosaurs. You can read Lucy’s review here.
