Yorkshire Wildlife Park
Yorkshire Wildlife Park is South Yorkshire's most innovative and fastest growing wildlife attraction. Situated just outside Doncaster, the park occupies 70 acres of a 260 acre site, offering a unique view into the world of animals with walkthough areas including Lemur Woods and Wallaby Walkabout, South America Viva, Polar Bears and Just arrived! Two critically endangered black rhinos.
The two-year-olds – Hodari and Dayo - arrived from their birth place of Berlin Zoo on October 6th
The pair, each weighing about 750 -880 kg (when mature they will weigh up to 1500 kg) will settle in here for a few days and get to know the rangers who will be caring for them before venturing out into their extensive reserve in the Africa section of the Park.
Yorkshire Wildlife Park is home to the world’s largest land carnivore…The Polar Bear. The only reserve in England and one of the largest reserves in the world. The park offers an unrivalled opportunity to come face to face with Amur Leopards and Tigers. The most endangered carnivore in Africa, the Painted Hunting Dog, can be also be seen at the Park, and on the ‘African Plains', zebra, antelope, ankole cattle and ostrich roam free. Other animals include the popular meerkats, racoon dogs and a herd of Bactrian Camels.
Let off steam in the indoor fun-tastic Monkey Playhouse. With tree houses, high rope walks and slides, there is something to keep all ages active. Call into Zoom, our Super Slide Barn that also provides hours of entertainment.
Nice day outside?... then why not let off some steam outdoors in our beautiful Forest Adventure Playground.
And for those that fancy a bit of retail therapy, the Safari Village offers a wide variety of distinctive gifts. The 600 square metre village, features outlets selling crafts, artwork and décor.

Yorkshire Wildife Park have recently welcomed their third Polar Bear, Nissan. He seems to be settling in very well, have a look for yourself:
A pair of critically endangered Amur leopard cubs have taken their first tiny steps in public but their progress is huge leap for their endangered species. The leopards were born in June at Leopard Heights in the award-winning Yorkshire Wildlife Park as part of a crucial international conservation project.
Amur leopards are one of the most threatened species on the planet. Only 70 of the majestic animals survive in the wild in the Far East of Russia and China and the fight to rebuild their numbers has been painstaking.
The cubs and their parents, Drake and Freya, could be critical in an international plan to reintroduce them back into the native habitat in a remote region of the far east of Russia.
Take a look at them stepping out in public for the first time:
