“Great day out”

Written on: 03/04/2013

We have just returned from our 4th visit this year with our nearly 3 year old and had another great day. Tropical Wings has a large 'Free Flying' Butterfly and Exotic bird house which also houses a huge Koi pond that has the biggest Koi I have ever seen (food available for 30p at reception to feed) Outside has many animals which our favorite is by far the wallabies which are very friendly and can be stroked and if visited at 1pm you can help feed them! lots of activities through the day… Read Full Review

“Nice day out for the family”

Written on: 11/02/2013 by reviewkitten (295 reviews written)

On a day that was filled with rain showers we headed off to Tropical Wings in South Woodham Ferrers, Essex. If was my first visit and I went along with my young nieces and family. I had no idea how big it would be and had just expected a couple of birds and possibly some reptiles. There is actually quite a lot of different animals. We saw meerkats, otters, owls and kangaroos plus loads of insects and reptiles. My nieces loved walking around the butterfly house as they kept landing on them. I… Read Full Review

Great for young children- staff are helpful and friendly- charges for entry and refreshments very reasonable . Chose to visit since costs at most centres are now prohibitive- was apprehensive due to lower charges but from entry onwards was delighted with all aspects - the enclosures with animals free to wander with visitors were excellent and the tropical jungle a delightful change.Will certainly visit again. Everything was immaculateky maintained with habd washes all over the place- plenty of… Read Full Review

We visited on a Sunday, not over crowded but the whether wasn't perfect. Compared to other wildlife parks the entry fee reasonable. The information given is excellent. The talks, feeding activities and raptor show informative and light-hearted. The butterfly house is fantastic

I would recommend this for a good afternoon out for a young family or for a couple who would like to pass the time of day… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/09/2009

An excellent experience. Although we have lived in Essex for over 30 years, we did not know of its existence until recommended by a friend. We didn't expect lions or tigers and the animals they have are delightful, as are the staff. It was great to be able to walk amongst the wallabies and other abimals.

They have an excellent cafe and the food was high quality.

We would definitely recommend Essex Tropical Wings World of Wildlife… Read Full Review

Can,t belive last review! had a wonderful day at Tropical Wings World of Wildlife. Plenty of directional signs from my direction, and the smell was coming from the farm next to Tropical Wings so not there fault. The childrens rides were £1 (average price).

We found the staff very helpful and very informed (they were able to answer all the questions put to them by my grandson) and the feeding times and bird shows were very entertaining… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/08/2009

The smell of silage spoiled our visit and the cost of the diggers and tractors lost the plce being value for money! The animals looked well looked after and the otters were cute. The toilets were clean and the shop reasonably priced. No brown signs to direct you to there. Felt overall Essex Tropical Wings World of Wildlife was an ok experience but the smell that was there on the day of the visit was too overpowering… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/05/2009 by stephking (1 review written)

A thoroughly enjoyable day out for my son. We visited having spotted Essex Tropical Wings World of Wildlife when driving by and it had a lot more than I was expecting. He loved everything we did, but his favourite part was feeding the wallabies, closely followed by driving the miniature tractors and operating the diggers. I thought it was good value for money and would definitely recommend it for a day out… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/08/2008

I noted a recent review, rating this place at 1, which frankly I think is ridiculous and that pushed me to add my own.

Absolutely loved the place (even though I didn't get time to see any of the displays put on by staff or try out the cafe) and for the price it's a great place to visit. Particularly liked the chatty birds.

If you're looking for a smaller day out than something like Colchester Zoo, involving animals then you can't go wrong.

Will definitely be back… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/09/2005 by Magnetic (33 reviews written)

Last week I had the pleasure of visiting one of the largest Butterfly Houses in the country. It's part of the Tropical Wings World of Wildlife at South Woodham Ferrers in Essex and I have to admit that it came as a complete surprise to me. I say that because I must pass it at least once a week and, although I knew it was there, I had absolutely no idea of how big it was or what creatures inhabited it.

For those not familiar with the area I should perhaps explain that Tropical Wings is… Read Full Review
