South Gloucestershire’s wildlife conservation park, Wild Place Project, offers affordable, fun days out for the entire family. As well as exploring the vast park, there are opportunities for animal encounters and outdoor adventures. Check the ‘What’s On’ board as you walk in to make sure you don’t miss out. Plan your visit by downloading the park map.
Wild Place Project is home to a pack of European grey wolves, which you can see in Wolf Wood. You’ll find elusive okapi in Secret Congo, a troop of gelada baboons in Gelada Rocks, and pygmy goats and lemurs in Discover Madagascar. Have an African adventure in Benoue National Park and take incredible photos of the animals from viewpoints around the enclosures. You’ll see cheetahs, zebras, giraffes, elands, guinea fowl and red river hogs.
In Barefoot Trail, you literally go barefoot to experience different textures underfoot. Especially fun for little ones, there are five ‘rooms’ across the trail leading you to walk across soil, bark, pebbles and mud. Challenge each other at Leap of Faith with fun activities, such as the rope race, the bear climbing wall, the Giant Swing and the nerve-testing namesake, Leap of Faith.
Enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the Walled Garden as you have a picnic and watch the wildlife. You’ll find meerkats, crowned cranes, Kirk’s dik-diks and exotic birds around you. If you don’t fancy a picnic, you can always grab a bite to eat at the Courtyard Café, Benoue Kiosk, Base Camp Pizzeria and Marshfield Ice Cream Parlour.
Wild Place Project is open daily from 10am until 5pm except for Christmas Eve, when it closes at 3pm, and Christmas Day, when it is closed. Last entry is an hour before closing time.
