This is actually a nice place to visit for an alternative day out in Dundee. Don't expect too much from the zoo, lot of animals are 'invisible'.. however it's enjoyabe walking around the wildlife centre. The bears were my favourite thing to see there.

We began our visit in the cafe which has a good selection of food on offer with very good service and reasonable prices. The variety of wildlife for such a relatively small place is exceptional and the animals and birds appeared to be well looked after. My personal opinion is one of regret seeing golden eagles caged but it was... More

Excellent Zoo, good value for money and you get a good close up experience with the animals. Much better than some of the bigger Zoos.

We booked a stay in Dundee and planned to visit here however when we arrived in Dundee it was bitterly cold and hailed but we decided to still go ahead with our plans to see the animals! I'm so glad we did as we loved the smallness of this wildlife park and all of the animals seemed healthy and very... More

We stumbled upon this little place on a recent trip to Dundee. It's quaint and nice. We went during the day mid-week. I'd imagine it's great for little'uns. We didn't see a hugh variety of wildlife but what we did see we have almost to ourselves and we enjoyed the experience overall.

We visit the wildlife centre a few times a year. Cost was £14 for 2 adults and one child. Unfortunately on this occasion the weather wasn't great which seemed to have an effect of the animals which didn't want to be outside. The bears and wolves were sleeping and only 2 meercats popped their heads out of their hut before... More

Absolutely brilliant day out, ticket prices are extremely good value! The bears were amazing, lovely enclosures and welcoming staff. Happy animals, even friendly wolves and wild cats coming right up to the fence. Visited in the winter time and i can only assume visiting in the summer will be even better. 5/5 would definitely come here again and i intend... More

Visited here with family and young child, hadn't been since I was a child, over 20 years ago! Excellent day out with lots of animals to see, the otters and bears being the highlights. £17 for two adults and 3 children made it good value too. Big sandy play area too. Only down side was the cafe which was expensive.... More

Visited here yesterday would my three children aged between 6 and 11. It's a lovely wee place to spend an hour or two. Animals looked happy and very well cared for. The playful young bears are a HUGE hit :) Had lunch in the cafe which was lovely and not too expensive. Wasn't busy at all but I think it's... More
