Welcome to

Cotswold Wildlife Park

Cotswold Wildlife Park is a superb family attraction located in beautiful Burford, Oxon., in a backdrop of rolling hills. With some 160 acres of enticing parkland and sculpted gardens, as well as a listed Victorian Manor House and an impressive menagerie of birds, mammals, reptiles and invertebrates, it makes for the ideal family day out in the country. Just the ticket for rest and relaxation.

The Cotswold Wildlife Park has long been renowned for its bird collection.
We currently house 93 species ranging in size to the largest bird of all, the Ostrich. We were the first UK zoo to breed the Great hornbill and have had other notable successes over the years with Black storks and Penguins amongst many others.

Our Large Mammal section contains the mega – herbivores such as Giraffe, Camels and Tapir, and the large carnivores such as the Asiatic Lion.

The Lemur collection is a real highlight of any visit to Cotswold Wildlife Park.

We are extremely proud of our conservation projects for Crowned sifaka and Greater bamboo lemurs – two of the most endangered primate species in the world. Our Madagascan Walkthrough exhibit allows our visitors to get a real insight into the lives of these fascinating creatures and is not to be missed. In and around the Walled Garden area of the Park, you will also find many other primate and small mammal species and the incredible Wolverines – Cotswold Wildlife Park is the first UK zoo to successfully breed this species.

Cotswold Wildlife Park has one of the largest reptile collections in the UK.

We house one of the largest snake species – Green anacondas, and also one of the most venomous – the Puff adder. Recently, we set up an initiative with the Seychelle Islands and received an Aldabran Giant Tortoise as a gift from their government. There is also an excellent collection of smaller lizards, snakes, frogs and invertebrates.

With the Victorian Manor House at the hub, a large walled garden and a wonderful collection of mature trees form the backbone of our landscape. The planting in and around the animal exhibits is an important part of our work and of course presents its own interesting challenges!

As well as plenty of seasonal events, Cotswold Wildlife Park also has a range of activities that run daily throughout the year. Daily Activities: Penguin feeding, Lemur Feeding talk, Big Cats feeding times, Children’s farmyard petting, Narrow-gauge railway and adventure playground.
