I feel lucky to live somewhere that has this place available to visit. A really open space for the animals. This means a lot of walking but worth it to catch a glimpse of your favourite animal. Plus you can always have a break while riding the little train.

I took a group of international students from Japan, Switzerland and Mexico to the wildlife park and they were amazed at how close you could get to the animals and they also liked the large open enclosures for viewing them. Everyone's favorite were the Grizzly Bears.

The park is a great place to take the family. Always took my daughter when she was little. Took my niece and family when they were visiting from Cochrane and the kids loved it. Better to visit in summer as more of the animals will be out.

Thank you for your review! We understand that not all animals can be seen all the time and we know it is disappointing if you can't see an animal you were hoping to see. While our amazing Zookeepers provide as much enrichment as possible to encourage the animals to venture out and explore their natural enclosures, we also offer the... More

We took our 4 year old granddaughter to the park for the day. It was fantastic! So much to see and do. It was a highlight for all of us for the week long vacation.

The Kamloops Wildlife is well worth visiting. We have learned to arrive before the 12:00 feeding of Clover. The train ride is always a highlight with guests. On rainy days the large sandbox in the play area is covered with lots of trucks, shovels, and various other toys for children to enjoy!

I have visited this wildlife park many times, summer and winter. In the winter it is great as the wild lights are just beautiful.A little train takes you through the park. There is refreshments as well and the animal shelters are wonderfully like the habitat the animals are from. It is a worthwhile attraction and recommended.
